This proud fence stands in Riverton City, a neighborhood deserving the name of city, simply because of the number of its inhabitants, but in fact it is an area of Kingston built upon the City dumping ground at the edge of the urban agglomeration. Here the poorest of the Jamaican poor try to eek out a living, collecting whatever remains of value after a poor country has thrown away what it no longer wants. There is a paint factory not far from the dump. This comes in handy as the desire for dignity as expressed through the care taken for one's surroundings is a great concern. KOK LOL inscribed in the Christian cross on the entrance to the small compound stands for King of Kings, Lord of Lords. The door of the shack behind the tall fence is similarly encrusted with religious symbols.
