it starts small

like the tiny rock Bugs Bunny

tricked Blacque Jacque Shellacque

into pulling out of his own dam

it didnt look like it could do much

except that it made us laugh

when Jacque learned it was the trigger

that one very small thing

holding everything back

the lynch pin preventing

a much greater disaster

but by then it was too late to stop


one tiny pebble

it doesnt look like it could do much

but Blacque Jacque could tell you

the only way to find out

is after its too late to stop
