Trick - Poem by Douglas Scotney

'Look! That our generosity is large we know;
but can you trick the public
into thinking it's gigantic? '
said the donors
to the architect of St Paul's.
Say they
to the builders of organs,
'Whack in a few pipes just for show.'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

looks like there's a lot more than you get.
Revealed by an architect I was talking to in front of the Elder Hall organ, Adelaide.
