Stone-grey walls and solemn Corinthian columns loom
Lady Justice – blind, silent, the tinkling of her brass scales still

Friezed walls of old
Oblivious to passer-bys.

The algae-green Dome a mini St Paul
Dwarfed by gleaming sky-scrapers.

Asian Modernity is at its peak
The indignity of imperialism lost.

The renovated Past – whitewashed, polished.
New wine in old wineskins, relish.

Riots that once plagued a nation
Erupts into F1 jubilation.

Where the old Supreme Court once sat
The National Art Gallery now stands.

An icon throughout the ages
The old Dame guardes the pages.
