Poem: "Steam Power"

This poem came out of Torn World Muse Fusion for March 2011.  It was inspired by a prompt from wyld_dandelyon and sponsored by Torn World user Michelle Goldberg.  "Steam Power" plays around with the concept of a tile poem, which has four lines each containing a keyword -- or in this case, a key phrase -- in a different position.  I had fun exploring different flavors of "steam" and "power" through the lines.  This poem will be submitted for canon board approval, and if it passes, will be visible to the public on the main Torn World site.


Steam Power
-- a Torn World tile poem


Steam is the power behind civilization.
It steams from the power plants.
It powers the steam engines.
We would be nothing without steam power.
