December 26, 2013
I sat at my desk and I cried "Wo is me! This has got to be time number nine-hundred three That a client has sent me some boring, square plans. I can't function with these pedestrian demands! Why does everyone want the same split-log shoebox? They could have the exciting! The box shape, it mocks All the study and time I put into this skill! Why, it makes me so angry, I think I'll be I'll!" In my rage and despair at poor imagination, I came up with a new plan, one born of frustration: An edifice o'er which I knew he would grouse! A Seussian, Frank Lloyd Wright-Opera house! Well, the client /did/ balk when he looked at the plans, But instead of insisting I meet his demands, The client told me of his cousin, from who, I came well recommended, "I guess I'll trust you," With some months of uncomfortable looks at my plans, He watched as I worked with my tools and my hands (and the hands of some underpayed laborers, too--- Hey, they all signed the contract, so there! and boo-hoo). Others came, while the building was still being built, And filled my client's mind with confusion and guilt, And derided my work, and said "You are a fool! Did you even attend architectural school?" I assured them I had, met their jeers with a frown, Then went home for a nap. I pulled the shutters down, And I took off my hat, and I kicked off my shoes, And I'd just closed my eyes when---They started their boos. A crowd had assembled, they'd followed me home! In the road, on my lawn, in my garden's fresh loam Stood some teeming, and steaming, and grumbling hoards, With a lot of unkind things on big, white sign boards "We don't want some gigantic, odd, curvily thing Marring our rustic woodlands!" they'd shout, and then sing, "Stay home! You're a madman! A crooked-penned cad! For straight walls are good, and your curved walls are bad!" Of course, I was incensed; for the sake of straight lines They would picket and curse my ingenious designs? "You can't stop me!" I shouted, "Though all of you curse, I'll make what you think bad a hundred times worse!" And I stormed with a snarl to my atelier, Where the plans on the face of my drafting desk lay And my pencil, French curve, and quad-core CPU Added even more curves, all in glass and steel, too! Then I went back to work, and I hung up a sheet, Hid the house from its roof to its foundation's feet, And the picketers picketed daytime and night And police stood outside just in case of a fight. But the worst of it all, not the crowds or the sirens, Was the hopelessness in my poor client's environs; At least thirty-one times he said we should give in, And I'd sermonize that I was sure we would win. Finally, after months of the crowd's scorn and griping, The building was done from the peaks to the piping. Twixt the trees, leaning leftward and rightward and out, Like the spray of a fountain, the green from a sprout. Windows glowed like the sunset, gilt horizon-fire Pierced the concrete, the woodwork, the metal and wire. Arts industrial with God's own sylvian blended--- And not one single straight wall; as nature intended. The protesters gaped when the curtain fell 'way, When they got back their voices, one smiled my way, And he timidly said "well, this turned out ...okay. Actually, it's amazing. ...we'll ...we'll, um ...go away." And I fought, (no, I did!) to keep off of my face My smug, toothy grin. Soon there wasn't a trace Of the huge swarm of naysayers /not/ saying nay, But humbly, abashedly walking away. And a tug on my sleeve drew my 'ttention back down, To the client, who said past a nauseous frown "I am sorry I doubted; it's really quite grand, Even if it turned out nothing like what I'd planned." So I frankly forgave his complaints and his doubt, Took my pay and my leave, and then turned back to shout, "The secret, in any great art such as this: please, Remember that straight lines are only for sissies!" His cabin's still there, and new homes next to his Were built shortly thereafter. What's interesting is: In that foresty land that was so full of grouses, Now you'll notice a lack of straight-sided, square houses.
