We are the Wallers


"The time has come "
The wallers said 
"To talk of many things
Of running joints
And hammer heads 
And how a struck stone rings."  

"Of shale and schist, avoiding
 cracks
And amethyst and slates,
And why debris forms mountain scree
And why the earth has plates"

"We'll speak of sub-atomic mass
Of particles and strings,
Of quantum leaps and isotopes
And earth's magnetic rings."

"And when we're done and figured out,
The universe and all, 
We'll still be no where near agreed 
How best to build a wall. "


John S-R
