This poem has lines that rhyme, but some lines are not in specific order. I believe this may be because at first, when the statue was built, it was mighty and strong which you could tell by the words on that statue. Then everything was in order and the builder was feeling good about it. But now, it is old and alone in the desert. It is crumbling and falling apart, kind of like the poem’s format. The parts that do not rhyme in specific order could be a result of the statue crumbling and getting old and out of order.
The structure of the poem is a result of time passing. Eventually, after enough time has passed, things fall apart and do not go in order like they were planned to. This is just kind of the way life works as a whole.
