Ogden Nash on "Constant Landmarks"

Maybe You Can't Take it With You, But Look What Happens When You Leave it Behind

As American towns and cities I wander through,
One landmark is constant everywhere I roam;
The house that the Banker built in nineteen-two,
Dim neon tells me is now a funeral home.

--1902-1971 (no date for poem given)
