Outdone

 

I spent hours on my construction,

on balancing a tower,

selecting all the flatish stones

and not being one to cower,

I put my skills right to the test,

balance was the thing,

and finally I got it made --

satisfaction that did bring.

But look out now, there’s always one

who comes up with something better;

in pebble-building this one is

a sure-fire damn trend-setter.

For look at the complexity,

it should not be allowed to stand;

but gravity has bent the rules

to give this tower a hand.

My pride is now just grains of sand,

for this, it is THE one;

in pebble-building towers

I have surely been outdone.
