Ever taller

An ever-grande story (#Evergrande #恆大集團)

This is a small story along the pearl river mouth

That started with a fast smooth hop in the vast deep south.

We're in China, former colonial cities, big dreams.

Just before new millennium, a man formed fresh teams

To raise huge buildings, seen as the center of the world.

Then his companies strengthened, grew up and flat-out twirled.

Yet they became big.

But this apparent prosperity wasn't for free ;

Nothing large could attain the sky, not even a tree.

The price for expansion was expensive : lots of falls,

Drops, and soon loss we actually detect on walls.

The Great Country will make choices, hence give it some voice,

Still whatever is conducted would never rejoice -

But lets flats to dig.
