What if? (The silent leaders)

A slave has fallen in a well
For he was sent at night
A slave has been eaten by wolves
For he was out for firewood
A guard is on fire for rescuing a maid
And no one seems to queench him
How much more will the king lose?

The king is unquestionable
The royal hood can't be questioned
Though many words are forcing my tongue
Itching for opinions
What if all slaves are dead?
What if all guards are vanished?
What if?
If nothing can be done

When the enemies attack again
The princes and princesses can be in danger
For the king and queen can't protect them
And the kingdom will be gone.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
When a home is on fire and the landlord makes no effort rather than travelling for parties then there is a very big problem and conspiracy.

If the kingdom is not looking after its' resources; then it will not have them to protect and help it. A simile that does work. The leadership of the country should take care of its' people and those that serve it. I think that your theme makes sense and the title is good, as it caught my attention. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

You always give me more reasons to hold my pen strong and keep writing thats for your comment.
