The City of Saints

The City of Saints.
A town with a deep history,
Where tourists gather every winter to celebrate
The “Grahamstown” National Arts Festival.
Or is it Rhodes University Arts Festival?
Poverty and desperation written on the face of this town’s people.
They helplessly watch the visitors celebrate in their own backyard.
With beggars in each and every corner,
A conspicuous segregation of classes.
