I always think their mortar,
was better than today
I always think their brickwork,
held confidence to stay,
Their posts are always thicker,
Their detail on their walls,
leads to one conclusion,
With pride they built them all.
Now we throw up Leggo,
Blocks , devoid of pride
Architects on keyboards,
Draw stuff in truth should hide.
When you build a house lad,
You have to build to last,
For a building will hold a history,
A beginning , ghost and past...
