Its red tint nearly blends in with the brick floor.
Though, in some places, the color has worn away,
It's just a threadbare carpet on a red brick floor.
It covers the cold floor
In a cold dark hallway.
The carpet dwarfs the portrait of a very old knight,
That hangs on the wall.
This same carpet has covered this same floor,
For approximately 200 very long years.
And it will probably stay here for a very long time,
Because the building it lives in,
Has been long abanded and cold.
