A Poem- Beautifully Clunky...!

This is a poem of unknown origin I'd like to share with you and invite comment on. It's Kiplingesque in style as it's a little clunky and awkward. It means a lot to me and I hope it resonates with you too. One of my bosses in my corporate life introduced me to it and I realise how much it still means to me.

"Isn't it funny that princes and kings
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings
And simple folks like you and me
Are builders of eternity...

For to each is given a bag of tools
A cobbler's last and a book of rules
And each must make 'ore the day is done
Either a stumbling block or a stepping stone"

What does it bring up for you....?
