Walls

They built walls like children
planing intricacies as they went
placing each brick
each stone with purpose
but only at the start.

Follow through
continuation
that was the problem.
They poured concrete over their designs
using decoration as support
hiding all the work
they had conceived.

Their minds the only place
such elaborate designs
will be remembered.
