Thanks Line! :) I actually find writing a shorter poem harder than writing a longer one - possibly as I have to cram the idea(s) in quicker. Who knows? :) Cheers - Gary

So true. Actually it is straight it is just leaning from the foundation. Our world IS skewed, especially right now. Congratulations on your wonderful win. Blessings xxoo

I've changed a line to place emphasis on the tower 'not leaning" now rather than it "not being straight' Cheers - Gary

Hi Connie - you are ro right - it IS actually straight. I'm now thinking as I write this if there is any word that rhymes with perpendicular :) Thanks for the congratulations and for making me think further too :) Cheers - Gary

David, thanks for the visit and your insightful comments. Yes, it may come across as a jest but it's not meant to be. I must be getting old as certain world events leave me scratching my head and going to bed each night quite concerned about them. Cheers - Gary

Hello Gary Radice, Was the building built like that? Or did a strong wind blow it that shape? I am just wondering. Enjoy your day my friend.
