Ruins Analysis

Rhymes of a RoughneckRuins in Rome are four a penny,

And here along the Appian Way

I see the monuments of many

Esteemed almighty in their day. . . .

Or so he makes me understand -

My glib guide of the rubber bus,

And tells me with a gesture grand:

"Behold! the tomb of Romulus."Whereat I stared with eyes of awe,

And yet a whit dismayed was I,

When on its crumbling wall I saw

A washing hanging out to dry;

Yea, that relict of slow decay,

With peristyle and gnarly frieze,

Was garnished with a daft display

Of bifurcation and chemise.But as we went our Southward way

Another ruin soon I saw;

No antique tower, gaunt and grey,

But modern manor rubbled raw;

And on its sill a maiden sat,

And told me in a tone of rue:

It was your allied bombs did that . . .

But do not think we're blaming you."Thought I: Time is more kind than we

Who blot out beauty with a blow;

And truly it was sad to see

A gracious mansion levelled low . . .

While moulderings of ancient Rome

Still serve the peasants for their swine,

We do not leave a lovely home

A wall to hang a washing line.
