So much time and effort expended

tediously applying glue

to the shards that fall from the plastered façade

hand-crafted for all to view

How much more time and rest afforded

if we cheered as each piece fell down

allowed it to crumble and fall at our feet

then, rise up on this conquered ground

hobart ruins
