Roundup and Link Love: Builder or Wrecker?

I saw them tearing a building down,
A group of men in a busy town.
With a great “Heave Ho!” and a lusty yell
They swung a beam and a side wall fell.
I asked a foreman if these men were as skilled
As the men you’d hire if you had to build.
He gave me a laugh and said, “No indeed,
Just common labor is all I need.
These men can wreck in just a day or two
What it takes a skilled builder a year to do.”
I asked myself as I went my way
Which of these roles I’ve tried to play,
Am I a builder who works with care
Leveling my life by the rule and square?
Am I shaping my future with a thought out plan
And patiently doing the best I can?
Or am I a wrecker who wanders the town
Content to find a building I can tear down?
