In this City

#writeclub #napowrimo

They built a place by a running stream

Technology basic but builders keen

It was the beginning of the city

Basic wells grew in size

to the chieftains surprise

and mud and straw to create huts

were changed for stone – hewn and cut

Houses needed food so they built some farms

and Markets and Roads worked a charm

for people coming to the city

Horses and chariots ran over stone

and places beyond the city, overgrown

people worked with found metal, to create the shoes

to protect the horses delicate hooves

and Later the barge – and use of Steam

travelling down waterways like a dream

following on – the steam engine and Rail

getting people and goods to places without fail
