Watcher

I am the night watchman

while you are sleeping I preside

over the things that need watching

and are best when kept inside

I am but a watchman

no place to interfere

and despite these ills I’m watching

I’ll only leave them here

While others fret and worry

crease their brows into furrows

I am but a mute observer

of all their many sorrows
