Sentry Duty

He must protect the castle from
The interlopers and the sneaks.
He vigilantly stands his watch;
He constants scans but rarely speaks.
Employing only diligence,
Eschewing modernist techniques…

We must project the castle,
Castle,
Must protect the castle.

For oft they’d come of wintertime
To perch within that sacred space;
Exhausting hospitality
And acting like they own the place.
Some swim with fins, some fly with wings,
Some crawl ensconced in carapace –
And so, he must prepare to fight,
Determination on his face…

We must project the castle,
Castle,
Must protect the castle.

Despite resources marshaled so,
Alas, the squatters now abound;
But keeping watch is all he knows,
It is for that he is renowned –
Uatu of his keep and kind,
He always at his post is found…

We must project the castle,
Castle,
Must protect the castle.
