The unconventional rhyme scheme helps to make this poem interseting to
read. There is something eerie about how the poet leaves the reader hanging
on the mystery of what the real story is about this place, now obviously
closed and left in shambles. There is evidence of an aura of "evil" having
befallen this place, and the reader tries to fill in the gaps of the untold
story, and I think that makes this a good poem.
