Sentries in a Row



Standing at attention,

8 sentries in a row.

Weary waiting watchmen,

Words won’t flow.


At ease, soldiers.

Off to the barracks–

get some shuteye.


At daybreak, reveille

sounds the new day.

The soldiers march

in perfect cadence,

words revealed.

  1. Oh, I know how you feel. I use so many words at work I wonder if I will run out. This was our 2nd full week of school in a very long time. I was so tired last night it took all I had to write more.
