Castle on the Hill


Up on the hill
Behind our house
Stands a castle
Or what's left of it

It used to be a magestic structure
But ememies came and crushed it
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle
Now it is only half there

There are lots of boulders to climb on
But it just isn't the same
As a towering, royal castle
Home to a king and queen

But maybe the people there
Did something to annoy enemies
And maybe they deserved to be crushed
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
