Misinterpretation

The idea was unique enough

The designer renowned

The location perfect

Time Tables agreed

Schedules formed

Site offices constructed

The steel posts went in

The concrete poured

The building took shape


The foremen looked a little disturbed

Some doors didn’t hang right – Some windows didn’t fit

The builders carried on unperturbed

There were birds and squirrels nesting in it

The Owners looked a little nerved

Questions from the bank – had to be swerved

On opening day, visitors were turned away

The architect’s team – looked on in dismay

The architect himself – developed a frown

The builders had been reading – the plans upside down
