The gardeners have hit the pavement,
Bulldozed by smiling engineers
Take your pick:
Withdraw your last fiver
For a philosophic Wheel-O;
Hands in your pockets, sardonic
Watch Babel climb.
“On this spot will be erected utopia”
But, the wise man knows Penelope
Has taken on Ithaca
And counsels Odysseus to put his
Money in Krugerrands.
— Zumwalt (late 1980’s)
