Denmark – Lego


It’s April of 2021 and Day 04 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.

Day 04 Country: Denmark

The words ‘play well’ translate to Danish words ‘leg godt’ from where the Lego gets derived. Yes, Lego’s come from Denmark. We all know of lego and have played with them. The Lego Group from Denmark has also built Legolands – several amusement parks around the world. The company was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen. The groups motto is thoughtful -“only the best is good enough.” Lego’s popularity is demonstrated by its wide representation and usage in many forms and not just as games. Their cultural works, including books, films, art work and also as teaching aid is loved by people world wide.

Poem:

All life,
Strive to fit in,
Fix it, like a puzzle,
Like a hunt,
For the meaning,
Without even bothered,
If we are,
At the right place.

The tools might be wrong, or maybe the place, or maybe us. Is it too late already?
