Slip Slidin' Away

Building sandcastles is serious work. You need a garden spade if you wanna make an impression on that beach.

And plastic soldiers and a paper flag.

Here comes the tide. 

Gotta build higher, gotta build wider.  And whoops- oh no-  a breach. There's a man down. The moat is flooding, the outer walls have turned to slurry. And a slab breaks away from the central mass everytime a wave slaps at it.

Five minutes- tops- and your work of ages has gone.

One day I'm gonna build a castle sooo tall and soooo fat that the sea is just gonna shrug and go round it.
