Tower of Power

The Riddle of the Wall
What would they say if these bricks could talk?
They'd tell of the secrets sealed up by their strength
By its rosy reach and its wretched length
If these bricks could talk.

Where would they go if these bricks could walk?
They'd clamor and clump up the spiral stair
And pitch from the top of the bishop's lair
If these bricks could walk.

What would they ask, if they could desire?
Not to witness the evil that men conspire
But if they must serve, to avoid the fire
This is what bricks desire.
