Come the Sentinel.
by John Hansen 2014
As April's soul rose from the grave
The demons crowded around.
Ghostly hands reached out to her,
Above consecrated ground.
The Sentinel surveyed the scene
From a tall dead oak nearby.
Then with a shrieking cry it swooped
Through the demonic funeral fray.
The spirits cried as if in pain,
As the black bird stole their prey.

There is a lot of media coverage and attempts to reduce road fatalities due to drink-driving, texting while driving, and speeding but a real danger is tiredness and falling asleep at the wheel.
Just imagine you were king of the entire world for one year. What would you do to try and cure the Earth's ills and to make it a better and fairer place for everyone?
Previously I wrote a poem called "If I Could Write a Love Poem." It was very well received and even selected to turn into a song that was recorded on an album by Tally Koren. This is the sequel.
