The Spire of Dublin Town

It’s near-impossible to get lost
In the city with the Spire
Sitting at its centre,
Nothing else higher

Than the phallic tower of Dublin,
An elephantine waste
Of sparkling metal that serves
As a convenient meeting place

For tourists and for locals
And anyone else around,
Because no matter where you are,
Nearly, the Spire can be found,

Erect and standing tall
Over O’Connell Street,
The (great?) tower of Dublin
Where the way-wanderers meet.
