How it Started (a Pantoum)

It all started with a photograph
A sample and a lure
Beauty captured in mid-laugh
A potion without a cure

A sample and a lure
A promise of things to come
A potion without a cure
A city without a slum

A promise of things to come
A prophecy self-fulfilled
A city without a slum
A foundation on which to build

A prophecy self-fulfilled
Beauty captured in mid-laugh
A foundation on which to build
It all started with a photograph
