A sculpture that makes the earthen icon,
And put on sale for the earning,
The meagre amount for the family,

Sculpture stood in a queue;
Fades his lively hue,
Knells and begs, the Sculpture,
Cry and tears of no use
But Icon shows their sceptre,

Who cares the days behind?
‘A folly of human mind’
We the sculpture of democracy,
And our representative,
A king with sceptre.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
