Faulted Foundations

Trying to ascend power

Fast

So the chance does not slip

So fast

That as you build the foundations for you to rise

You skip some steps

Dip your hands into dodgy business

But nonetheless

Your structure holds

For a time

But then

As you are at the peak

Having reached all that you wished for

Your weight is too much

For such badly built

Unskillfully knotted ties

And you crash down

Back to earth

To face your foundations

And see them crumble

As somebody builds on top of your misfortune
