Foundation

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 21
Two-for-Tuesday:  Write a construction and/or deconstruction poem.

A solid foundation is vital
for a building to endure .
Quality should never be stifled.

If materials are recycled,
integrity must be assured.
A solid foundation is vital.

When you hold a title,
your clients must feel secure.
Quality should never be stifled.

Corners cut will push buyers to rivals.
Be confident when conducting a tour.
A solid foundation is vital.

Remember that you will be liable
if workmanship is poor.
Quality should never be stifled.

Well-constructed buildings withstand trials
of raging storms, lightning strikes, and more.
A solid foundation is vital.
Quality should not be stifled.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
