Design For A Glass House

by Maria DePaul

How to Create a Blueprint for a Glass House:

Set the entryway wide enough to accommodate its delusional owner, who
   will be adorned with invisible raiment crafted by swindlers intent on
   robbing the Kingdom.
Place a dock at the foot of a hill facing the embankment of the Capitol’s
   main river, so that local fishermen may use it to harvest the last
   remaining marine life.
Frame the entire structure with chrome and brushed aluminum so that the
   reflective surfaces, combined with the reflective glass, confuses
   passing birds into frequent crashes.
Don’t forget that the grand U-shaped driveway must be preceded by a
   tree lined lane for motorcades to make wide turns into and out of the
   compound.
The entire facade must be as expansive as it is empty so that even
   passengers in planes overhead can be reminded of the glorious
   ruler who lives there.
Finally, assure that both interior and exterior lighting is set to maximum
   brightness so that the facility may be viewed from space at all times.
