The Monument For All To See

 As many men made monuments
And many more were making still,
I built the scaffold with intents
To also boast upon this hill.

 A structure great enough to show
The splendor of my work and craft
To those who saw it may they know
That this is glory that will last.

 They saw that it was thin and square
And lacking any artistry
So full of holes exposed to air
And did not look a bit like me.

 But when my children looked and saw
The magnum opus of my soul
They jumped with glee and stood in awe
And knew at once what was their role.

 They built their structure from the base
I flattened down and leveled true,
And worked to quicken up their pace
Until their craft was finished too.

 The day had come to now unveil
As people gathered 'round to mock.
A rocket ship that soon would sail
To places far beyond the stars.

 The people all beheld the sight
The hill that shook so violently
As fire soared across the sky
Our monument for all to see.
