Something I saw painted on a boulder in 1976 & have never forgotten & still puzzle over

JOE 14

One night around the same time we were sitting in our favourite pub watching a Phillipino writing on the wall of the Phillipine Consulate across the street. He was using a tin of white paint & a brush & very carefully wiping the brush on the tin as he neatly painted MARCOS IS on the wall.

2 punks approached & spoke to him. He handed the brush to them & they scrawled some obscenity across the wall, without wiping the brush so the paint ran. When they handed back the brush he carefully completed his message and all the world could read MARCOS IS A BAD MAN.
