This poem is written because of  One Stop Poetry ....Arts and Graffiti I chose this graffiti by Banksy as I find it so ironic


Keep it neat !
tis our street 
We're all so prim
Scribbling is such a sin! 

Keep it smart! 
tisn't art !
We all have class
Self expression is so crass!

I think its neat, 
art's such a treat!
Banksy paint down our road, 
The middle classes have been vetoed. 
Parliament  have made a social treaty 
 Urbanites must embrace graffiti.
