Building Slump

Oh, poor buildings !  Gutted inside;
They mistook your artisan pride for slumming.
They rip-out and knock-through, your subtleties egress
To plate-glass and concrete: the onmarch of regress.
Go, poor buildings !  Run off and hide !
The architects are coming !
They turn all to shit that they plan, draw and quarter,
But keep your façades as the trophies they slaughter.
