In response to one-word prompt : Rush
Oxford Street !
There is a street named, Oxford Street,
The pedestrians there over-use their feet.
They’re always in a rush, I know not why,
They seem lifeless robots who cannot sigh.
Each time I want to say, ‘Haste makes waste,
Watch , go slower, or you’d have a bitter taste.’
Still their crazy feet only wants to hurry,
I look, I watch, I say , why should I worry!
If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited— a building, a cultural Institution, a common street food, etc.– and bring it to your hometown, what would it be?
The idea of cloning is terrific, some of the institutions, buildings,shopping centers, common streets I’ve seen in another city or cities and bring back to my hometown, there are a few I’d like to have in my hometown e.g. “Oxford Street In London, England” is a grand addition to my hometown, or even “Selfridges”, here is one problem I’m bound to encounter, my hometown is not large enough for the store or the street that could be placed with ease.
Maybe I’d like to bring back the Jean Talon farmer’s market in Montreal, it’s not too large, it’s a place where you can see a variety of yummy foods and produce, oh but bringing some of the produce back to my hometown can be a stumbling block esp. produce which are not grown in my hometown, to bring them by truck is a worry because the produce will rot by the time it gets to my town.
My next option is to leave things as they are and be contented with the thought some things cannot change.
