The Statue That Almost Was

Bronze and stone, they had a dream:
They commisioned a statue,
I guess they thought it would bring
A semblance of remembrance;
Something to which they could cling.
The artist had his virtue*
And created what would seem
A semblance of resemblance
To one Martin Luther King.
Alas, it was not their dream.
