I think words are;

Isn't is strange how Kings and Queens

etc.............

We are all give a pail of tools ...........etc.

Isn't it strange how 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 list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone.

R. Lee Sharpe
