Carl Sandburg - The Harbor

PASSING through huddled and ugly walls
By doorways where women
Looked from their hunger-deep eyes,
Haunted with shadows of hunger-hands,
Out from the huddled and ugly walls,
I came sudden, at the city's edge,
On a blue burst of lake,
Long lake waves breaking under the sun
On a spray-flung curve of shore;
And a fluttering storm of gulls,
Masses of great gray wings
And flying white bellies
Veering and wheeling free in the open

Och när vi nu prata

Och när vi nu pratar ekomino.Glöm inte det faktum att men nu lånar en halv miljard till PRIO också. Kostnaden för detta blir 100milj/år i några år framåt.De ökade anslagen äts upp snabbare än de kommer in!
