1. America waits/
For the elevator up/
Unused to walking/
#haiku

2. The elevator/
we’re accustomed to requires/
Sloth’s* infrastructure/
#haiku *Hell’s

3. The “easy” way up/
Powered by outside forces/
Weakens our people/
#haiku

4. One step at a time/
Gives us more steady progress/
By just, honest means/
#haiku

5. Elevators make/
Life easier not better/
Enriching owners/
#haiku

6. Taking the staircase/
Let’s you feel the gravity/
You’re overcoming/
#haiku

7. Elevator rides/
Feel really modern and cool/
But they weaken us/
#haiku

1. Imagination:/
The coarse sand in the gears of/
Productivity/
#haiku

2. Manufacturing/
Is not creating new wealth/
It concentrates/
#haiku

3. Manufacturing/
Does not create anything/
It distills our dreams/
#haiku

4. The “trinkets of ease”/
Spill out of their factories/
To consume our lives/
