Closed For Renovations

It’ll take a crowbar
Or police battering ram
In order to get it open.
Feel free to wait
In the vestibule, fantasizing
About what lies on the other
Side of the door. If you
Do get inside, I hope you
Brought a flashlight –
One of those heavy duty
Magnalights. It’s dark inside,
And you might need to use it
To bludgeon the bats that
Have taken residence inside.
Oh, and watch out for the piles
Of guano. This place has been
Shut down for years, and hasn’t
Had a cleaning in a long time.
If you have the patience and
Resources, I ensure you the
End result will be well worth
Your initial investment.
