Title

Johnson Town

Description

"In a way, Johnson Town citizen, Israel Kerr is lucky. After all, four of his neighbours lost their homes. He did not. And when, during the rains over the week-end, high seas removed his latrine from its base in his backyard, he was able to retain it for further use by means of these chains with which he anchored it to land. His only problem now is that if there is a high tide he may have to swim."
