Graffiti

A world of public declarations

Territorial admonitions

And artistic explorations

Scribbled and scratched

Stencilled and daubed

Bombed and tagged

On toilet walls

On the sides of trains

On bridges and subways

From Ancient Rome to New York

From Belfast to Berlin

Simple words chipped on ancient tombs

Elaborate murals sprayed with paint

Or drawn with marker

In monochrome or full colour

Messages of social comment

And political ideals

Declarations of love

Curses and magic spells

And famous quotes

Kilroy was here

Stuff 498
