House of Cards

We build ourselves a house of cards

Wherein we lock our treasure

For good measure.

But come the wind and rain

(a hurricane),

or when the earth begins to shake

(an earth-quake),

Our house of cards comes tumbling.down

And what have we but rubble for our trouble.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  10. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
