A Woeful Tale of Love, Luck, and Death in The Castle Doctrine

Ryan Arnold Lloyd

Your entrance looked like this:
http://castledraft.com/editor/11zlVU

It was beautiful, simple, elegant, cunning
Just three steps, the clock was running...
Turn the corner and one would pause…
Unaware they were already within its jaws

An endless trail of wire and trap
Deep black pits across the map
"How in the hell…" they wondered aloud,
Could they possibly do Indiana Jones proud?

I solved this riddle once.

And then
Thinking perhaps I was near the end
I felt faint promise of higher thrills
Just as soon as I'd dispelled the chills


You changed your house before I returned…

…but fate would hold it to be no concern

The changes were slick, to just one fault

…which was when I stumbled upon a vault.


I stood and stared for a time, in shock
I couldn't destroy this thing of beauty.
The cops nearly interrupted my thoughts
As I struggled to ken a Robber's Duty

No house of mine would compare to yours
Nor would it be immune from thieving
I had no wish to build a castle
When losing yours would cause such grieving.

Alas, I made my decisive step.
And came at destiny's ambition
My family stared at me in silence
As I loaded my pack for one more mission


Guns! Bombs! Drugs! Bricks!
My fury had no dollar limit
I'd wreck the first house I saw
And maybe find some money in it.

Ugh Blech Barf
For this, was such a marvel stolen?
I walk through hallways holding up my scarf
Thinking it looks like someone's colon.

I go in, well-tooled, about to make
A mess that might not get a double take
One ladder down, one dog drugged, oK HERE WE GO
One dog stepped on, I- OH NO.


And so ends the brief sad tale
Of a poor fisherman and his white whale
He who forgot the golden rule:
Far better the wise pauper, than the lucky fool


R.I.P.

A truly excellent work of poetry.


YT: www.youtube.com/user/JoyOfTrapping - The Bushido Code of Castle Doctrine:
Death  --> Observation --> Knowledge --> Power  --> Application --> Testing --> Skill
Seriousness --> Caution --> Deliberation --> Clearer Thinking --> More Success --> Less Frustration
Lack of Attachment to Results --> Lighthearted Play --> Respect for Enemies --> No Anger After Failures --> Faster Skill Building

Awesome poem!!!

I keep dying of a natural cause - Stupidity
The biggest thing that Castle Doctrine has taught me is that the price of your house is proportional to the stupidity of the mistake that kills you.
