Paper Soldier


Once there was a soldier, he was brave and beautiful, and he wanted to change the world.

Other soldiers mistrusted him for he was a paper soldier.

He believed he could face them, and improve conditions for the whole world.  

Forgetting he was a paper soldier, he cried fire!!!

He flamed out, before he could achieve his goals.


Clay, paper and fire.
