(24/01/2013) Burning Bridges

Dewey Bridge Fire 2008
 
I build castles
In ruined lands
Of rubble and stone
With my own hands
 
I build towers
In eerie bogs
Dragging wood
Through morning fog.
 
I build roads
Where none need be
So others can travel
And see what I’ve seen.
 
I build these things
But this is my crime
Because I burn bridges
All the time.
