    Bag of Tools - R.L. Sharpe:

    Isn't it strange, that princes and kings,
    and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
    and common-folk like you and me,
    are builders for eternity?
    To each is given a bag of tools,
    a shapeless mass and a Book of Rules;
    and each must make 'ere time has flown,
    a stumbling block or a stepping stone.
