You must be wondering what's it got to do with the photo.
Here in downtown, don't be surprised to see guys like them
on the side of the street, they're not the local Tambays.
*a slang word for people who like to hang around and do nothing.*
If they have this spinning steel wire placed in front of them,
then they're actually offering services that needs help down there, no pun intended,
that is sorting out the drainage to whatnot, instead of doing it yourself.
