I built a wall to keep them safe from glowing eyes
Men of straw and shadows growing stronger every night
In a silent protest built my castle one more flight
until their numbers stop and turn in
the children's safety must be certain.
But it all went wrong
The men of straw were growing much too strong
In a panic I did what I thought was best
Devoted every moment to fight this impending death
When the brick and mortar cut a hole across the sky
and a mist of white sent shivers down my spine
a sudden pull
the wall came tumbling down, below.
but I didn't know
what was lurking in the waters close to home
