Substance Matters

A house of cards

Built on air

Fine until

Some wind is there

 

Missed somehow

Foundation stone

It just stands

All alone

 

No mortar in

Each different layer

Just card on card

Missing matter

 

What happened here?

Attempts are failing

As one card

Begins sailing

 

Down they fall

All a’jumble

They all take

A final tumble

Stone is waiting

All in place

Ready to

Extend its grace

 

This time’s different

Again to build

Something sturdy

Each piece milled

 

Not to hurry

Mixing mortar

Cleaning spatters

Substance matters

 

That house of cards

Built on air

Was fine until

Some wind was there
