The tale of the cities
keep us in the going
letting a best of knowing
carrying it with incidents
that went on to make up the city decent.
The landmarks that still remain
give us a peep into the past in a feign
while most have been razed down in the main
without concern and consideration but for gain
giving an appearance shoddy inviting pain.
The cities now have transformed anew
look different as the renewal
goes in speed unaware of the heritage sinew
making digressions many not few
rendering a sight gaudy subjected to rue.
The cities were formed and framed
with the mind and indication not tame
but with the thought of fame
that would be bestowed on their names
taking them to heights without blame.
Now they look sophisticated and grand
They differ from the prescribed strand.
Holding high raise buildings in the land
might look secure but could never withstand
the quakes and Tsunami that dismantle the band.
The tale of the cities get added with facts
as the years go in a fast moving tracts
The inclusions in later years gain strength than the acts
that had been performed to make the city intact.
Listening to the tale and questioning are pleasant interacts.
