Canto CXXXVIII

We all agree the monster can look pretty
as evening falls, the nearly finished Shard
amidst the light pollution of the city

as if they finally privatised the stars.

    I like the Shard or, more importantly, I like the idea of the Shard and buildings like it. They show that London is still a vibrant and growing city. I think that the secret is to build and maintain a varied environment with small human scale buildings and parks alongside these Towers of Mammon.

    I like the final couplet.
