Grand Hotel

In The Grand Hotel
Grand people dwell
Or so one assumes
By the size of the rooms.

But when the glory fades
And the thin paint peels
The grand walk away
With a click of the heels

So I drink a toast
To those Grand Hotels
Ne'er do wells
That scans with nothing
And their numbered days
And their numbered doors
And celebrity lives
All gone in an eye sparkle.
