The Bowels of The Bowery *

Transformed at the turn of the 20th Century in a region of land barren of nutrients for foliage’s growth, prospers a garden of sorts, lush with the excrement of smokestacks and industrial waste. The infertile landscape has driven men to secure guard, as it’s riches have become a commodity to place barterers in the realm with entrepreneurs, tyrants and typhoons alike.

These people are known as “squatters”. They do not own the land they reside upon, but they do take care of maintaining it, often raising it’s value, suggesting that such peoples poor of monetary equities have the upper hand when it comes right down to it.

You can say that they possess the rights to the chamber pot to piss in, but don’t stand a chance at having the funds to buy the toilet paper they need to wipe the deeds clean with, of the owner’s names.
