A response to all the inane graffiti that’s appeared lately. But in four words or less – like the graffiti.
Dull. Tags. Name tags. Or just a word.
Love. Nuke. Tomb. (Tom.B) Etc.
Sad. Dumb. Fail.
A good idea?
If you must do it do it well.
(And yeah, we all need to make a mark.)
But do it just once.
And then do some new idea.
And try to do that well too.
And do it in some sane spot.
Don’t foul your own nest
Not once nor over and over.
Nor the nest of any one else.
If you like, try this as a rule –
Do to folk as you want done to you.
Want them to dye your eyes?
No one will ever find you cool, phat, dope, etc.
It’s all just blah blah blah.
Be sad to know we all yawn at you.
