Shoring Up The Walls.

Was I really so wrong
To let someone in?
Should I run,
Should I hide,
Slam down the hatch,
Bolt the latch
As downhill I glide
On a slippery slide
To land in a basement
Of gloom?

Should I bolster my defences,
Set to building fences?
Be alone,
On my own,
Brick up windows
Shore up walls
As I sit
In the pit
Of solitary
Hell?

I should have stayed
On my guard,
Kept watch,
Kept my head,
Looked for entries
Looked for cracks
Set up spotlights
Let out dogs
Prevented breaches to
The walls.
