Gargoyles have been feared and misunderstood for centuries.
In a long ago time, when long ago peoples,
Where building cathedrals and raising up steeples,
They crafted stone creatures and set them on perches
To guard and protect and watch over the churches
So gargoyles were born, and they stood night and day,
Keeping evil and terrible spirits away
And ne’er was a creature so true and so loyal
As the watchful, courageous, and fearless gargoyle.
But the years came and went, and the people did, too.
And in time , they forgot what their , ancestor knew
And whenever, they passed by the gargoyles lairs
They trembled in fear at the gargoyles stares.
