TOWN CAMP - Poem by Ali Eckermann

You call it 3 bedroom house
I call it big lotta trouble

You call it electricity
I call it too much tv

You call it litter
I call it progress

You call it graffiti
I call it reading and writing

You call it vandalism
I call it payback

You call it burnt car wreck
I call him finish

You call it hill
I call it Yiperenye

You call it a sad
urban environment

I call it HOME
