So, is it art or vandalism? Or can it be both?
Shake and clang, hiss and spray,
make your mark, run away,
“I wos ‘ere”, painted scrawl
top of bridge, subway wall.
Vivid colours paint the scene,
hard, sharp lines, harsh and clean,
urban art form of today
gentle brush replaced by spray.
Take a chance, break the rules,
safety first is for fools,
prove your worth, do or die
winners live, losers cry.
It’s the way we see our lives,
we’re not workers, stuck in hives,
paint the world we live each day,
show the things we see our way.
