Builder

Day twenty five of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem using an Anaphora. Anaphora being a repeating phrase. This one is inspired by the growth of the concrete jungle all around the city.

There’s space over there, between those buildings,
Before someone sees, let’s build something there.
There’s some barren land, outside the city,
No one uses it, let’s build something there.

That lake is dried up, for quite a while now,
Lay a foundation, let’s build something there.
That place over there, claimed to be haunted,
Abandoned it is, let’s build something there.

No one knows who owns, the land behind mine.
Put a fence around, let’s build something there.
Let’s build something there, wherever we can,
Illegal rackets, are suppressed by bribes.
