35 Days: 12 May - Poem #30 A Wall Ten Feet Thick

He built it all up,
day by day, brick by brick;
surrounded himself
with a wall ten feet thick.
He could not get out
but they could not get in.
No arrows or slings
could damage his skin.
Immune from life's troubles,
immune from life's pain,
every day he examined
his fortress again.
He was happy and certain
he was safe and secure.
Nothing could touch him
of this he was sure.
Then one day he died
and the walls tumbled down
and the look on his face
was a great startled frown.
