Kerri Shying R # 223 - Revitalise my cityscape


Revitalise my cityscape

stop saying rebirth              about the place             when what you mean
is you are ripping us a new arse            how much more

of this indignity             should we have to take             always
making us agree at each stage             just be a Visigoth              a vandal

get the thing over with and done             all this internecine what-nottery
so bad for all the sandstone               and the flouro paint soaks in    the  sad

air drifts down along my street            we have ceased to make our gardens
self-conscious  to be twee    to be the we              we were before              tell us

again              how good it’s going to be

    "Write me a cheque". It's horrible to see.
