Steam Power   Poem  
Creators: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), mikka (Patron)
A tile poem talks about steam power in the Empire.
Posted: 06/27/11      [No comments yet] ~ 28 words.
 

Steam is the power behind civilization.
It steams from the power plants to pull cables.
It powers the great steam engines.
We would be nothing without steam power.

Author's Notes

This poem came out of the March 2011 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from Wyld_dandelyon and sponsored by Michelle Goldberg.

This is a tile poem, a very short form introduced in the story "One-Tick Literature." It is the kind of poem that might appear on a brick or paving stone at a steam power installation in recognition of a donation. Tile poems are often written on calling cards as well, and people sometimes copy favorite ones that were originally inscribed on buildings or walkways.
