Riddle #9

There’s a breach in the gate that needs sewing,

As invaders flood in for plunder and pillage.

The garrison feverishly fights to limit the damage.

Plenty of points for the Huns to keep storming.

 

Liken to Beijing, Rome, or Berlin.

Empires outlasting the disease beyond within.

Withering to unyielding wretches and decay.

Anything to hold the siege out another day.
