An Ode To Singapore

This fabled city with its merlion,
Was founded just two hundred years ago,
A compact island small and beautiful,
It has much more than excellence to show.

It's an historic bustling shipping port,
Connecting the eastern world with the west,
Its trade, tourist and entertainment scenes
Rank surely as among the very best.

The city has been built with precision,
Pleasant parks and greenery all around,
It has a clean super infrastruture,
With transport system excellent and sound.

This smart multi-racial country is safe,
Setting a rare example for the world,
Various religions thrive in harmony,
Singapore is truly an Asian pearl.
