Groundwork
 
Who mixed the concrete?
Who laid the mix?
Who measured the gap?
Who chose the fix?
 
Who cut the plank?
Who boiled the pitch?
Who arrived first?
Who last to ditch?
 
Who made the plans?
Who worked the longest?
Who was paid most?
Who was the strongest?
 
Who will come next?
What will they bring?
What will it cost?
To this tune who will sing?
 
Will ever they meet?
Will meetings be chaired?
What of the outcome?
Who really cares?
