My Castle

April 8, 2008
By Olyvia Leahy, New Bedford, MA

This is my kingdom,
Welcome to my castle,
I must warn you,
I don’t want any hassle,

So let me clarify,
And let me make this straight,
You don’t need a password,
To get through the gait,
But if you bug my servants,
Or unhappy my knights,
If you bother my dragon,
Or steel my jester’s tights,
I may open the drawbridge,
And send you on your way,
But before you leave,
I’d have a few things to say,

Like, “I hope you don’t fall in the moat”,
Or, “Please forget to write”,
Maybe tell you to run,
Because the alligators bite.
