Jesus Rojas Torres, Orlando, FL:
That’s so Miami, eighteen years of living in the US,
this city has thrown me into mental disarray
making me believe I’m living in America
what a joke,this is not!
whether in businesses, studies or love
almost everyone comes
with hidden aspirations or goals
wanna partner with me?
artificial city exhales only pretensions
filled with star-struck wannabes
yes, it’s sunny, yes it’s warm
there’s sex and there’s party
what is up Miami?
is that all you’ve got?
show me your spirit
and hurry up
you must grow up!
Exciting and Extravagant.
Guajiros in Bentleys.
Tostones and Champagne.
That’s so Miami.
Oh, stuck in traffic
Oh, stuck in traffic,
So much for that half-penny,
That’s so Miami.
80 yo broken hearted man
with a machete in one hand tackled
by FL State Ag Czar as they chop down
his beloved citrus tree. That’s so Miami.
That's So Miami
