Walls

2 PM 26/5/1999 by Chronofus

SO I HIT A WALL. HARD

NO WHERE TO GO BUT DOWN

AT LEAST I CAN'T FALL

ANY FURTHER THAN THE GROUND

IT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE

I DIDN'T SEE IT COMING

BUT SOMEHOW I THINK I BUILT

THE DARN THING MYSELF

I DON'T KNOW WHEN I BUILT IT

BUT IT LOOKS SO STRONG

HOW COULD I HAVE DONE IT

AND BEEN SO WRONG?

IT'S TRAPPED ME HERE NOW

SLUMPED ON THE GROUND

UNABLE TO SEE A THING

BUT TH EPAIN THAT I FOUND

I CAN SEE THROUGH IT CLEARLY

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IT'S THERE

BUT IT'S STOPPED ME FLAT

FROM GOING ANYWHERE

I DID A GOOD JOB

I CAN'T TEAR IT DOWN

I CAN SCREAM ALL I WANT

NO ONE HEARS A SOUND

NO CAVALRY COMES TO THE RESCUE

I'VE GOT NO SECOND CHANCE

I BUILT A WALL

WHILE ON A MERRY DANCE

IT WAS REALLY QUITE CLEVER

I BUILT IT SO FAST

A WALL OF STONE

AS A MONUMENT TO THE PAST

IT'S HOLDING ME HERE

NOWHERE TO RUN

BUILDING THE WALL

I HOPE IT WAS FUN

'CAUSE NOW THAT IT'S OVER

AND THE DARN THINGS BUILT

I'M TRAPPED HERE WITH MY SORROW

AND PAIN AND GUILT

IT'S A FUNNY THING TO DO

TO BUILD A WALL

HOW DID I DO IT?

IT WAS NOTHING AT ALL....
