The construction was precipitately wrought
And cleverly put together observers thought.
It had appeared erected there in public sight
A work in human form now exposed to light
Such structures are wont to be roughly hewed
This was imbued with a coat of verisimilitude.
Yet he would not long withstand the heat of day
But as a nebulous mirage quite disappear away.
While not another David, "Man" evoked a little awe
An artifice of snow was after all all good folk saw;
A pipe then a carrot would drop in the frosted park
Just a dripping melted mess – what victory in Iraq?
