Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

"A farmer and his hired help were carrying grain to the barn. The farmer carried one sack of grain and the hired help carried two sacks. Who carried the heavier load and why?"

The farmer- he's carrying a sack full of grain while the farmhand is just carrying two empty sacks.
