Gigantically towering grey-faced giver of itself
to many a roof,
open-air cathedrals of hard labour,
choicelessly enforced small wage-earning congregations
slog it out, men, exploding, hacking, chiselling, splitting, trimming,
making beautiful in so many other ways too.
Did I mention those injured and dying in the process?
look again, look again at the old roofs and remember, remember.
