Midnight Castle

Through the howling wind travels the midnight castle.
It tries to escape from the city hassle.
It progresses towards a land far away.
In that land it hopes to stay.
Behind the castle walls there are secrets being whispered
by the hidden ones who know the tales of the Egyptian
pharaohs and the queen of the Nile.
They have been concealed for ones personal gain.
Just like the other treasures that are
slipped under the floorboards
or buried in the icy heart of the king.
This castle was built with lies and hatreds.
Each brick representing another misfortune.
Yet still it is a place loved by many.
It is a place thought of as holy.
This place is a scapegoat for ones sins and shames.
Majestic as it may be, this palace is not a place for you or me.
