A Mistake Rewarded

A Mistake Rewarded

 

By Elton Camp

 

In Italy, bell towers are often found

In many villages and towns all around

From them many an incessant  peal

Will call good Catholics in to kneel

 

Of holy or feast days they do tell

By their relentless, insistent knell

In Middle Ages, to show their power

Cities competed to build the best tower

 

But why not play a history game

How many of them can you name?

For one who is not of Italy, like me

Only one name of them I can see

 

To be remembered, all it will take

Is to make some colossal mistake

The builders thought they were able

To build a tower on ground unstable

 

But to lean is what it started to do

Before its construction was through

But lack of sense the town did betray

Gradually finished the tower anyway

 

Such mistake should bring shame

But a great asset the tower became

It brought to the town lasting fame

Leaning Tower of Pisa is its name
