Scarecrow's Ploy

Outside the house of a great and despised lord There hangs an awesome scarecrow of might and fright He’s ferocious and heartless in one accord His beady eyes light up red, glows in the night He starts fires in the pits under his control To create fear in mortals inside this hole Other scarecrows surround the fire just smiling Knowing man’s time has come, they will be dying
