I need to rebuild something.
The ground where it sat is clear.
It is not the bricks fault they keep falling over.
The footer never holds.

It is not the earth's fault.
It has set fallow for seven years.
That is plenty of time.
It orbits in the cleansing sun and rain.
Under gravity's grip it should be firm now.

It is not at all firm enough to hold.
The builders are the best, doing all they can.
The experts agree it has to be built here.
None see reason it can't.

Is it a riddle to thrive on this ground?
What are the deepest problems?
Let us get them fixed to hold our stand of bricks.

The underment may be a vast underground eroding river.
Conduits can hold for the time we need the structure.
Resolutely we are building something here.

I strive to not make matters worse. I know this is my only point to control in rebuilding.
