The Canary Lookout

homophones, because I like 'em.  

The Canary Lookout

Can aeries of
Canaries of
Good pedigree from
Good pets agree from
Alarming warbles,
"All arm in! War bulls!"
Held our shelter
Deep within the earth

They were safer
They were, save for
A trickling few
A tickling fume
Wafted from the clay
The lookout saved the day

For a praise in a
Coat of arms
For appraising a
Code of harms
Emblazoned on a shield:
Canaries in a mine
