Look on My Works, Ye Blighty, And Repair

“Latest Banksy mural smashed as derelict farmhouse demolished”
The Guardian

We could have offered up a proper praising
With just a few more days before the razing,
But Morning’s Broken came to full fruition
Just one quick step ahead of demolition.
The artist left us little time for viewing
(A very Banksy thing that he was doing).
