A Million Little Blocks

One after the other,
Building, stacking,
Upwards we go!
A million little blocks
Stacking up higher.
And what is the price of progress?
When the tower becomes too tall?
Progress for the sake of progress?
When our pride causes our fall?
We’ve learned not to ask those questions,
Because questioning progress is regressive,
But what are the costs
Of being overly progressive?
