I know the idiom "the (hand)writing on the wall", so I make the sentence. However, I'm not sure.

    :-) Yes, it makes perfect sense if the wall is going to be demolished. And the word-play does work. Not "handwriting" though. The expression is "the writing is on the wall" or "the writing's on the wall", and we rarely change the wording of these old expressions. May 29 '20 at 2:01
  • With graffiti, and someone approaching with a sand blaster or a pot of paint, the writing is on the wall for the writing on the wall :-)
