Building on sand is a bad idea
especially when the dunes are moving.
You never know where they will steer
or start up building or deep grooving.
Natural powers do not stop
or waive their right to push or pull.
They’ll bury this church to the top
in sand until its room is full.
Where we want a house erected
we have to test the proper ground.
Carefully planned and well inspected
It should hold promises we found.
