Our Little Red Dot

Our little red dot

is decorated with triumphant trees

which stand like mighty servants

guarding our roads and pathways.


Our little red dot

Flows a mighty river

Passing along majestic museums

and colossal skyscrapers.


Our little red dot

Has a monumental Jewel

Which the waterfall

dances with grace

among the charming shrubs.


**"Little red dot" is a nickname often used in the media, and in casual conversation, as a reference to Singapore. It refers to how the nation is depicted on many maps of the world and of Asia as a red dot. Source.
