The Great Wall of Us

Whatever came between us

can be overcome

like the Great Wall of China

to the Mongolians

nothing ever stopped them

when they found out they could just hop over it

and continue their onslaught

of Peking.

To think more people died building the Great Wall than it kept out

reminds me that some times the best defense becomes the worse offense

when we attack ourselves

simply by trying to build a wall around us.
