Palm trees and bright lights and smiling people.
The glamour. The glitz. The full Hollywood razzmatazz.
Over-turned cars and burning fires and desperate people.
The injustice. The violence. The full social unrest.
Cameras clicking and flashbulbs sparking and the crowd cheers.
The gowns. The radiant idols. The elite on show.
Cameras clicking and flashbulbs sparking and the mob riots.
The disillusioned. The disadvantaged. The blood on the streets.
A city divided.
A country collapsing.
A world lost.
