The View From Parliament Hill (stanza # 6)

THE VIEW FROM PARLIAMENT HILL

 

To a new generation –

Not having witnessed the inundation-

These now dead icons

Standing in the Basin

Is as if their construction

Had been on the instruction

Of a late vain-glorious tycoon,

And which now stand like follies

Upon a vast ornamental lagoon.

Ergo, it is adjudged, this vain exhibition

Belies the savage activity

That once occurred therein.
