An engineer of repute
Was engineering a design
The blueprint of
That marvelous structure
But, came to naught
In his perspiring thought
As to where
To put the glittering chandelier;
In between the rooms, or
To some point
In the center of the ceiling, or
On top of the dome

And a brick-mason
Seeing THIS, from
A distant corner
With reason full
And an understanding
Deep for an engineer to fathom

“The way of the heart
Slightly favours a tilt!”

Saying this,
He picked up a nearby brick
And pressed it on engineer’s palm
Asking him to feel its weight.

A thunderous applause erupts:

“The way of the heart
Slightly favours a tilt!”
