A brick is
lying on the bin
possibly from a building
that would have rocked with din.
The brick has become a trash
discarded from the demolished structure
that surely would have been a bash.
The brick has lost its stature
fallen from the debilitated edifice
that would have had a significant feature.
The brick is left in the rubbish
possibly a part of a historical monument
that would have been very stylish.
So be the destiny of the brick
once at the height of glory
now dead without any tick.
Could be said not only of the brick alone
be that of anything men and matter
being forced to resign in a forlorn.
