    Standard porcelain soldiers
    stand silent sentinel to all.
    Stud horses gallop in gray stalls
    waiting for their riders to return.
    Appearances deceive those
    whose eyes wander without wiles.
    Camouflaged chameleons could be cops
    or just another California curiosity seeker.
    Eyeglasses follow all
    assuming the position
    and inspecting the ranks.
    Yellowed paper sticks to heels
    and stirs the dank cauldron's tiled yard
    draining urine to its rusted drain.
    Caution stays the voice.
    Fear freezes in place,
    but queer quarry unglues its tongue.
    Busted!
