Big House Burns

Big House Burns
Laijon Liu 2015.08.08

wall is for protection
door is to shut outsiders out
window is to peek the outside
backyard for kids to play, and friends’ beer chat

Houses are past down thru generations
they’re nation’s treasures or family’s legacy
but I’m thrilled seeing big houses burn:
Temples, Summer Palace, Plantations, Global Corps...

because when a house gets too big
the owner hires slaves to maintain it. 
My friend said: “we ought to be live in containers.”
I said: “yeah, when we are all drunk.”
