Mumba whose eyes are a thousand blind windows! Mumba whose skyscrapers idle in the streets like apathetic giants! Mumba whose buildings are judgment! 
Mumba whose mind is pure machinery! Mumba whose blood is running money! Mumba whose clogged veins threaten to rupture!
Mumba whose love is endless oil and stone! Mumba whose soul is electricity and banks! Mumba whose factories dream and croak in the smog!
Mumba whose poverty is the specter of genius! Mumba the incomprehensible prison! Mumba whose fate is a wave of the waiting sea!
