Live from Kranji

A leisure suit is no defence
against the 35C
its a tight hussle
weather and horsemen
the game goes on

skeletal companions
smoking Marlboro
deep in the form
Malay Malay
horse lore in the haze

I move to the English lounge
gratifyingly stand-offish
public school accent
all taken with aplomb
mahogany boardrooms

I'm down 50 by the 5th
El Dorado's in the pocket
burst from the turn
commanding adrenaline
home for a 100

Singapore nights
harbour-side towers
champagne club
tall balconies
hewn from the jungle

About this poem:
In several trips to Singapore over the years I once enjoyed a day at Kranji racecourse.
