Broken castles (daily challenge)

Broken castles

Built on sandy foundations

Waltz to the beat

Of a non-windy day

Metallic heads roll

With statements that aren’t droll

And young cynics

Parade their souls

To no avail

To no witnesses

Monarchs drink empty cups

And praise virginal deities

In the comfort of torn buildings

In the faded remains

Of their broken castles.
