We attended a meeting the other day
bunch of people talking about
smart cities and inclusion.
We listened and watched,
rolled our eyes in pain
“surveillance” was the solution
or the word of their games.
Policing people into submission,
knee-jerk technology over reach
not engaged attitudinal change.
against poor, male
perpetrators of violence.
Ghettoisation never touched upon
urbanisation the new norm.
Attentive conversations we wished
Disappointment we were left with.
