Downtown Building Owner Tired of Graffiti Fires Back With This Excellent Poem

Posted By on Thu, Oct 25, 2012 at 8:30 AM

We always appreciate a healthy release of anger, especially when it takes the form of rhythmic verse.

Thanks to SF Citizen, which snapped this before-and-after photo of an empty downtown building that's currently the site of prolific graffiti, not prolific jobs.

The building:

  • Words are a mother fucker

And after some building owner caught sight of that literary work in downtown, he or she wrote this poem for those "scumbags" that reads something like Eminem meets Robert Frost.

Well, if there were more jobs to be had, maybe that would give these people less time to scrawl nonsense on buildings in downtown. Just a thought.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
