#13. DUBAI OR NOT DUBAI THAT IS THE QUESTION architecture
when will you do something other than for money
you never get it anyhow
always thinking you are hitting the big time when will you ever learn
your misplaced investments of enthusiasm and time will not be refunded
but used to materialise sentiments you can only despise
the stick has been thrown and you're eager to fetch it the spell has been cast
you're a beckoned finger follower
of emerging pied pipers
with magician economies and unlimited funds
so go then and leave us
your boredom at home can plainly be seen your dollar sign eyes are being drawn elsewhere
go on to the middle and far easts
and be seduced by the freedoms of sugar daddy sheiks no more grey skies
no more homespun red tape it's great to feel wanted
in context-less virgin barren landscapes
to design and build something a tribute imposing
rightful respect, reflects your opportunity overdue
architecture
the pill will be bitter
how do you think you're gonna argue for the better
with your sponsored chequebook and summoned by kings
it’ll be 60 storeys high with a ball-ball on top
and you will have to swallow your pride and deliver nevermind architecture whatever happens it's gotta be more glamourous than improbably facelifting some tired seaside town
your buildings will get built you will get the chance to regularly buy duty free
you will feel loved and needed
your ideas will finally be unimpeded
but in these hot air climates
it's just the sun that is brighter
the mirages are bigger
and if you look to the horizon
you'll see through the haze that it's all really the same as at home
