Lews Castle

Home of a drugs baron
Home of a soap baron
Seat of learning
Seat of division

Built on opium
Built on sunlight soap
Built on expulsion
Built on expansion

Owned by the rich
Owned by the magnate
Owned by the people
Echoing to the past

Abject poverty
Around opulent riches
Tropical trees
near barren croftland

The wheel of fortune
turns once more
from neglectful decay
to five stardom?

The Castle remains,
a prominent landmark,
as much as
a sign of division
