Wow! Awesome way to tell this story. Very original:)

Hooray indeed! This so reminds me of the ballad of Pecos Bill. I loved the way it built upon itself, gaining weight - as it were - to the climax. This is a wonderful way to re-tell such an important Biblical parable in that it will reach a new audience.

Well done! This was a joy to read from beginning to end.

Will I ever?...Perhaps someday I'll reach the level of originality this poem displays. Loved the rhyme, rhythmn and repetitious refrain. Extra points for the title!

Beth, this is wonderful and a very well deserved win. I've been mulling on writing a 'This is the house that Jack built' poem recently but I would never have thought of using this Biblical account, and would never have had your wonderful word choices and rhymes. Fantastic.

I think you should have this illustrated and made into a children's book.

Brillant job! Congratulations on a much deserved EC award.

This is masterful! I like to write poetry, but this is awesome work. I agree with Bonnie. It should be formatted into a child's book.

Great job. I was trying my hand at this using the The House That JackBuilt technique and had it a little differently. This is well done!! I love reading your pieces.You have a gift for creativity and often humorous expression in many of your entries. Love it all!:)
