Voicing opinion on public property is damaging!! The spray here is really very thick and bold!!
I find sticking of bills on walls an act of desecration too!! Good take on the prompt!!

I will ive you an applause for this haiku.. you have used the prompt so well.. wow!!

Saras said...

Very good one. Expressive lines.

yes, it's considered vandalism in the eyes of the law here. the symbol depicted in the picture here is 'anarchy', that's how opinionated it is! i find sticking bills on walls more unsightly than graffiti.


thanks for the visit and the applause! having lived in the city it's not hard to come out with this take on the theme. :)

Some boldness we could do without. Graffiti comes to mind...

Twice Bold here and here

Yeah, this is a bold statement in more ways than one!

it has been said that graffiti can be a measure of a city's decline. the more there are the faster is the city declining. i don't know how true it is. :)


thank you! :)
