WE BUILD THEM UP…THEN…

crane building altered

 

We built a crane…then he sat…

gathering webs…

waiting…

waiting…

for something to build…

hating…hating the fact…

he has to sit…

and act…

with aloofness

So he doesn’t look…

useless.

He  just wants to build…

and be fulfilled.

So…he waits.

At last

success…

he achieves his goal

building a city…

he finally feels whole

He stands tall…

his flag flies…

into the cloud

He retires…

to crane- land…

feeling proud

of his life as a…

crane.

A life of…

everlasting fame…

But alas… and…

woe is me…

I am glad that…

old crane…

can’t see

what man has done.

His buildings downed.

Dust…

hiding the sun

as crane’s greatest work…

tumbles undone…

to the ground.

Another crane…

its role…

not to build…

but…

SMASH… they said.

So he…

SMASHED…

but was filled…

with dread.

Why does man build…

then pull it down?

Do they just like the…

boom…

of the ball

as it crashes down?
