Wall Secrecy

Wall! ! Wall! ! Wall! !
The mirror in you reflects my ignorance.
Showing me my physical appearance.
My mind suspects you ve a secret,
Whether hot or cold, you stand it.
Never sleeps or dies for new ones.
But you've got shadows like humans.
You shield my foes from their riffles.
Things hit you hard,
You bark loud,
Your shadows merges the sun.
Wall! ! Wall! ! Wall! !
I suspect you re living.
I suspect there is a reason,
For your silence and pretence.
You stand fixed feat.
What's your secret?
Wall! ! Wall! ! Wall! !

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
