The museum

Vain relics of ancient worlds,

out-rooted for our beauty,

useless archives of life,

magnificently set-up

in soothing colours and compelling lights –

Stone crosses from Celtic lands –

Paintings of long won and long lost thousand men battles –

Portraits of kings, wall-sized faded tapestries –

Protected, we are

forever displayed

for the pleasure and judgement of man-kind,

exotic outlanders, countless passers-by.
