Wat an Improvement

by Alex Steelsmith

“World Monuments Fund Transfers Management of Angkor Sites to Cambodia…
[E]fforts to preserve the precious relics were imperiled by the Cambodian Civil War of the 1970s…”

The artifacts of Angkor Wat
were once imperiled; now they’re not.
Where once there raged a discontent,
we now have Angkor management.
