Against the Demolition of Rossmore House


When Sheriff Taylor, Aunt Bee and Opie

Came to visit HOLLYWOOD,

Their first stop wasn’t Dino's or P.O.P.,

But Rossmore House for ill or good

(It's called something else in the episode,

A former bestowal or fictional mode).


Nowadays we decry the modern

Of clean lines (next to Godliness)

That show the maker's skill and art and

Grasp of democratic cess

For shapeless, formless, well-nigh awful

Dreck would make Frank Wright unlawful.
