A Bag Of Tools

Isn't it strange 
That princes and kings,
And clowns that caper 
In sawdust rings,
And common people 
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?
Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, 
A book of rules;
And each must make -
Ere life is flown -
A stumbling block 
 Or a steppingstone.

... A Bag Of Tools, R.L. Sharpe
