MANSION MANIA

I passed a mansion the other day,

In fact, passed more than one.

Some with hewn stone done,

Some covered in artfully laid brick,

Requiring a good eye and sound mortar trick,

To make the design to go up and stay.

2

Money had been lavishly out paid,

For angle upon angle of this or that roof,

More than was needed to make it rain proof,

While window design was a sight,

Multitudes of ways to let in the light,

And neat walks were out laid.

3

All this says nothing of a huge lawn,

Mowed to perfection, trimmed just right,

With hedge and shrub cut to perfect height,

And flowering trees or flowers themselves,

Tiered up and down as outdoor shelves,

Some lit to glow from dusk till dawn.

4

High fractions of millions or millions and more,

Where paid to build unique castles,

Tools and toys added to minimize hassles,

Cooling and heating storage and game room,

Creature comforts instantly zoom,

Awaiting the owner – all pleasures are in store.

I passed a mansion the other day,

Some covered in artfully laid brick,

Requiring a good eye and sound mortar trick,

To make the design to go up and stay.
