Architecture

There was a disagreement about architecture,
the people of the city not consulted,
about that ghastly venture,
they felt insulted.
To built a modern contraption,
clearly in violation
with style.
It was wrong by about a mile.
To this lovely medieval castle,
the modern add on couldn’t hold a candle.
Tourist would gather in the new building,
they have a knack for wielding,
camera’s flashing,
crowds dashing
forward
onward to clogging the view.
It’s like a hearty stew,
better to have few than to many,
the way society fucks up the old and sacred is uncanny.
