Legendary district commissioner David Marsh dies aged 93
True friends are impossible to forget

The never-learning world of the litterer

The street cleanerMICHAEL GEKETA

An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

Year in, year out,
Leaders with a heart
For a litter-free Port Moresby
Come in, and exit;
Litterers value them not

Months come, months pass by,
NCD Commission executes policy,
To drive the informal sector;
Vendors improvise, to befit their ethos

Week in, week out,
Awareness conducted outright;
Sellers veto
Heeding ancient sentiments

Day in, day out,
Cops roll up, they abscond
Cops gone, it is business as usual

Hours
Minutes
Seconds
Bypassed
It’s a bloody-minded attitude
All the way
