THE WATCHMAN

Who watches the watchman
when the night is deep
in silence
in solitude
what thoughts does he keep

who lights his light
when its flame dies
who guides his path
riddled with lies

will he see that night
find its day
or to dawnless darkness
let the night stray

who watches the watchman
when the world is asleep
who watches the watchman
alone when the night is deep?
