Whither Watchman?

IMG_0202-0

“Watchman”, they cried
“Tell us when the enemy is near
And we’ll be armed and ready
To defend our town.”

But the watchman slept
The enemy came
And in the morning
There was nothing left.

Of hateful acts committed
Those admitted when
His post the guard abandons
Will not be forgotten around here.
