The house must be reconstructed From the foundation From the beginning This is the decision of those Who have seen the house This is the decision of those Who reside there
For reconstruction The old house would be knocked down To build a new one
Those who got the contract Begin to demolish At first they entered inside By unlocking the door And destroyed the hinge Destroyed the lock The lock that was shared by the house Got destroyed with its sharing
In the duty of destruction ' Some took the wall Some took the courtyard Some took the upper floor Some took the ceiling-beam Some took the window Some took the balcony Some took the roof Some took the foundation
The crowd had gathered to see The demolition Of separated portions The bewildered eyes See the house collapsed
Observant comments Arise from the onlookers ' The roof should be removed first Others say The wall should be knockdown Yet others say The window should be taken off
If the old house has to be ruined And ripped through the foundation Why then the ideas of Fragmented Demolitions!
If it knocks down in a second If it knocks down in a blow Why this supervision? For what these fragmented attempts Of demolition?
Let it not be so
Let not another carpenter Or another builder come
Let not that old house Grow stronger Awaiting for tomorrow With a much bigger wall Surrounding the house.
