The Man Made of Gold

The man made of gold
approaches the table,
beer always in hand.
Everyone watches.
In the center of table blocks
are stacked, three across.
He taps each piece
of the tower, where is
the weak point?
A block gives way, pokes out
the other side of the tower
to stack it on top.
The man in gold pulls
the block out from
the side of the row.
Too much!
His tower falls in defeat.
The blocks spill over the table
to crash onto the ground below.
The man made of gold looks
at his mess, stoops, and begins
to reassemble life.
