Evolution or Devolution

The euphoria about a house
 built by a rich man a decade ago,
 pictures highlight its grandeur,
 the floors 40 in all
 with three helipads,
 gardens, car parks,
 ball room, banquet
 kitchens, bedrooms, 
make one raise the eyebrows
 not out of awe  anyway.

It is his privacy, his wealth 
allows such extravaganza
not any of a concern 
to the ordinary who 
wants a roof over the head
the latter will pass the area 
without curiosity, least admire. 
An unnecessary painting
 by the media  which 
does not inspire but  distract   
the otherwise contented mind.
