used to build
will grow taller still
with much work and skill
the workers strive a tireless lot
if pulled at small and weakened spot
the building looming tall and proud will plop
Follow this prompt from Poets United:
BUILD IT UP –One Word At A Time Your first line has two words. The second line has three. The third, four, and so on. Length is not limited so long as each line contains one more word than the line before it. Write until it’s ready! When you’re finished, go back and give your poem a one word title.
Ever play the game Jenga? It’s a great lesson on what happens when we go over the top with just one too many levels.
