We gather in cities for support
Slums and low rent areas allow art
to foster via benign neglect
Factory walls sport graffiti
Interiors become Art Galleries
Cheap housing is sometimes deliberate
Benign factory bosses building 19th century "workman's cottages"
(which now sell for a million dollars)
When high intensity inner urban areas are "gentrified"
they are cleared of indigenous,homeless,unemployed
who can no longer afford raised rents or housing taxes.
And we are all getting older.Habitats are threatened.
Poorer folk move to the country-but they then have travel costs
And rents rise everywhere eventually.We gather because we need each other
We divide because we cannot afford to live together.
