"Ich werd' die schlechtesten Sprayer dieser Stadt engagieren..."

There's some semi-fresh graffiti work close to the Esso gas station near my apartment. It must have been done on Friday or so, because I don't recall it being there on Thursday.

There isn't really much to appreciate about this piece, as I find the spelling and print quite atrocious... but the message is...interesting. I've passed by it the last few days and I must say, it's really made me think. At first glance, I thought it was kind of an anti-Mulatto Revolutionary statement, but the more I ponder it, the more I think that it's the most pro-Mulatto Revolutionary statement ever.

See, the whole part about "di white separated from di black" refers to "society" in its current condition and what this particular writer wants to do is "burn a society", i.e. challenge the status quo.

Anyway, I'm thinking making "Me burn a society" the official motto of The Revolution.

Unfortunately, the two pieces to the left and right of this little trinket of wall poetry detract a bit from the writer's message.

To the left, a penis...and some balls...and the letters PA. I think the "p" probably stands for penis, in which case I like to imagine that the "a" stands for association.
