Farewell Furry Sentry

Farewell Furry Sentry

Farewell furry sentry
Nine years you fought an unseen war
Ceaselessly marching up and down outside our castle
Carrying your battle scars like medals
Defending us from the ginger haired foreigners
Who lurked at the border of thirty-nine
Killed in a cowardly midnight poison attack
Your hapless corporal made it back to die, but not you
Your body lost, out there alone on the field of battle
No glorious send off for an old warrior
Just a sad end befitting your noble silent mission
But your memory Shines on
In the boy who’s bed you guarded every night
Protecting him from creatures of the realms we cannot see
We only wish we could have said goodbye
