Turn Up Side Down - Poem by PINONDANG SITUMEANG

Catch crowded Bus to work
Back home help house works
Living in a tiny room
No TV set, no furniture

Working hard, jumping to a ladder
Falling down to the bottom well
Cornered long in a golden cage
Before a leader in a project

Project from scratch to a thousand
Connecting isolated islands
Work closely with foreign consultants
Open wide access international

Flying around the globe
Send kids overseas college
Graduated, good pay cheques
Have fancy cars, nice jackets

Retired come got a shock
Lower income, higher costs
Kids lived away with spouse
Dreaming a sweet old memories
