Architect Magazine


Show us on paper

How the pieces should fit.

Which lines look best in blue?

The materials we should buy,

The exact measurements,

Or the whole thing will fail

You say.


Unless we follow those steel legs

Drawn round in concentric circles,

What are we paying you for?

Symmetry requires a compass

Only you can read.

Show us universal beauty.


It costs an arm and a leg,

A pound of flesh.

Can we afford all this?

“Cut here” like paper dolls

We follow your pattern

Three easy payments.
