Scritti Politi

The 'Cow Pain Manifesto'. Graffiti. Newtown Park, Sydney. February, 2005.

I love this piece of graffiti, even though it pisses me off that people deface public property in this way (in this case the sandstone wall that seperates my local park from the cemetary).

The lunacy and left-of-centreness of these sentiments crack me up. I mean a fruit forest, without any electricity to run my juicer? I think not, 'mkay?

I like to imagine the author standing there, paint brush in hand, with the following internal dialogue:
Now, is that cow's pain or cows' pain?... of screw it, who's going to care?!

Well, I think we all know the answer to that one. Although free life, that one sounds kind of good.
