Poverty Tourist – Written June 2009 (Aged 34)

Poverty Tourist

they want to live with the, ‘real people’
to experience the, ‘streets’
but they buy purpose built apartments
arranged so neat,
far from the, ‘scavenging crowds’
beneath their laminated feet
they want to live with the, ‘real people’
to experience the, ‘streets’
they build locked door communities
they make poverty tourism so complete




James Garratt – June 2009
