Red Brick

Red Brick

for thousands of years
red brick's been used

building walls that stand
for something 


it's red when baked
all that heat creates

something hard
durable but even so
easy to build with


where did it end

red brick remains
a builder's dream


old mortar fails
they like to say

rome's colosseum
wasn't built in just a day


old mortar in its walls
hasn't fallen out

two thousand years
it still holds firm

almost durable as brick


for thousands of years
red brick's been used

building walls that stand
for something
