The Designer City: A Series of Acrostic Haikus

Sterile streets precede

Sterile personalities

Be clean, be well, be working

 

Initially wowed

Safe tap, hot shower, the train

I think I’ll love it

 

Never ending malls

Raised concern, but still impressed

Spectacles of wealth

 

Go ahead, spend on

Metro train boyfriend will get

New Prada bag laid

 

Attractions abound

The lure of big city life

Conform is the norm

 

Pitiful playlists

Repeat top forty, No one

Has answers, just gab

 

Overstated and

Underwhelming. Fun police

Lurk on all the quays

 

Robot vibes and rules

Make my skin crawl, make me cringe

City of soulless

 

Enough indifference

In this designer city

Where’s your opinion?
