O brick,
Have people done on you a trick?
You are slowly fading away
If not already,
You’ve been hidden behind a glass-tray.

Book stores closing down,
Digitising the whole town,
Glass-towers rising high,
Oh brick,
Doesn’t it make you cry?

I see only glasses all around,
Within which you have been bound,
No architecture, no concrete design,
All I can see,
Is a lot of reflections at nine.

Until I get back home,
And I feel the comfort of foam,
Get wrapped around the four brick wall,
I feel you,
When I collide or have a fall.

Oh brick,
Have people done on you a trick?
