And so you Build


And so you Build

And so you build.

Things break down and bust,

Crumble down and tumble down,

Dark days do not turn to dawn fast enough

And so you build.

The millstones grind and watches stop

Gloves unravel and coffins splinter

As earth remains earth forever

And so you build.

You build a shelter, a hovel, a house

You build a wall, a gate, a portcullis

You build whatever it takes

To put a tarp over your shoulders

And pretend like the storm is not overhead

And so you build.
