What’s a building

July 10, 2017

What’s a building to do?

Is it for some function or use,

or should it just stand there and look back at you?

Must the building pose, so proud and grand,

being stately, stable and strong,

or should it fulfill some meaningful plan?


Some say a building should blend with the earth;

thus it oughta be curvy and quirky,


allowing nature to re-green its girth.


Others state that a building should be modern and sleek;

it oughta be angular, straight and clean


Then it can be filled with both workers and geeks.


It seems to me a building should be all of these things,

fulfilling all the purposes that human life brings,

allowing all shades of the gray, the browns and the greens,


thus fulfilling everyone’s dreams.
