Quality Hotel

See that 99-year roof above your head?
Or that comfy, warm, inviting bed?
Smell that heritage hawker fare upon your table?
All only because things are nice and stable.

Can you walk the streets at any time?
Of course you can, there’s next to no crime.
Need to travel to your next destination?
No traffic jams, floods, strikes or demonstrations.

Need a doctor for that cough and cold?
Everyone’s covered, even when they grow old.
Need a good school or quality childcare?
Every school’s good, far beyond compare.

Oh yes, our fee…
Ahem, you must agree,
Quality ain’t cheap,
Unlike mediocrity.

Pay peanuts and you’ll get just monkeys,
Pay millions, and you’ll get us __________.
