Creation and Destruction


Creation takes a long time,
you have to be very patient.
You have to be careful,
'cause one slip up is all it takes.
Just one slip and it falls apart
and all that patience will be for not.

Destruction takes no time,
it can be done by anyone.
It takes takes skill to be good at it,
skill and cold heartedness.

Creation is yawned at,
while destruction is cheered for.
Many enjoy seeing things cripple,
seeing the mighty fall.

Creators will often be ignored.
Destructors will have glory,
but it will never ever be enough.
They can never be satisfied

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
