Owl Poetry & Prose

This Fortress

This Fortress is fortified

The drawbridge is up, the rooms are manned

The moat is full and the crocs are swimming

No boats allowed, no chance of winning

Guarded against the onslaught

Once trialled, once fought, once penetrated

Now fraught

No more to be used, abused, plundered, torn asunder

No more to be risking for the sake of a thrill

The broken walls – rebuilt

The dented armour – re-forged

The pulsing heart – re-fuelled

The soul once torn, now whole

No more to be the playground of a cowardly asshole
