Poverty’s Streets are the new Manhattan #poetry #photography


Poverty’s Streets are the new Manhattan

You want to change me

I don’t want your life

behind the wheel of a Benz

I like my two-speed bike

with peeling paint

no one wants to steal it

like they steal your unoriginal ideas

I don’t need a copyright

on my street art

it’s free

when they paint over it

I have a clean canvas

and plenty of cans

what happens when your money

is printed on soup can labels?

your gold-plated life

peals and all that is left is blank?

what will you have

when Manhattan

is just another ghetto?

Here’s the Daily Post Challenge:

Click over to your favorite blog, and pick out the 4th and 14th words (that aren’t “the” or “an”). Drop them into this phrase:

“_____ is the new _____.”

There’s your post title. Now write!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BLANK.

Inspired by my friend Charles Martin

    1. Dear Friend Your country will be given atscssanie by kind people who will hopefully help. The people in Mozambique need assisting because they cannot get the medicine they need to prevent dying. Vaccination is something that every child NEEDS and if they don’t get and then they get a cold or something, it is possible to die.You only have to donate a few pounds and you could save thousands of lives. It only takes a couple of minutes to donate or sign a good caused petition and you could make people in Mozambique not die from very nasty illnesses.
