The Fence

A man built a fence
study and firm,
it stretched for a mile
and drew the line.

He dug the posts deep
and nailed the boards
then patted the top
at a job well done.

A man built a fence
sturdy and firm,
but years have passed
and it sags to the side.

The man is dead
and buried and gone,
out lived by the fence
he built long ago.
