We built a house of glass.
We kept throwing stones.
The glass we used was bullet proof.
Thrown stones bounced off.
The seals were not tight enough.
Rain entered the house.
After the rain the sun shown in.
Greenhouse effect fogged the glass walls.
Our glass foundation unintentionally formed
an expansive ant farm.
The glass ceiling gave us
the spectacle of lightning storms.
We threw stones at passing clouds
to burst them before reaching our house.
Often the thunderheads
dropped hailstones in response.
