Four Corners

    
                    
                               All four corners we’ve had firmly nailed
                               down, lined up solid, perfectly straight
                               and level, reinforced with braces glued
                               then countersink-screwed together tight.
                               
                               No wind’s going to tear this one apart
                               or knock it down, shred it, lay it waste.
                               Come blizzard, come hurricane, hard
                               cold, scorching heat—not in this space.
