Spotlight

A spotlight from below means trouble,
its focus could expose bad traits
swept under the fine carpet’s stubble
of gently woven coloured plaits.

Though when turned off it does invite
people to aim their rubbish there,
which probably will dim the light
if nobody is there to care.

You guessed, of course, illumination
of a famous building site
is the aim, not invitation
for people’s discard out of spite.
