Lorries, Busses, and Trucks

Aluminium
British English
It means lorry in Swahili
The inability to communicate is driving me
Mad
Like an aluminium lorry
Barrelling down the high street
So much noise
But the aluminum bus coming up the regular street
Is more silent,
Filled as it is
With plush comforts
Made for a people
Who declare their separation from the world
As a statement of pride
Like you and me
Shrieking down private boulevards
In gated no-communities 
Air conditioned and sound dampened
While up from the south
Come those jalopies, caravans, donkeys
Sometimes with hope
And sometimes suffocated and cooked in the back of a 
Truck
