The Sentry

In the dark of the night
While the city is asleep
Everyone is safe
The security he will keep

The silent observer
Guardian of the night
Ever alert, ever watchful
Nothing escapes his sight

Clad in knight’s armor
A spear, sword and a shield
His power to smote enemies
He is not afraid to wield

Pitch black darkness
Scares him not
Far mightier foes
He has fought

The trust in him
He cannot cast asunder
No one shall escape his guard
To pillage, loot or plunder

For he is our sentry
Guardian of our city
Protecting us from evil
To keep us from becoming eulogy
