Fortress by the Sea

A fortress that stands by the sea
Long since unfit to defend against
Anything but the shorebirds and the tide
That laps at its moss-covered stones.
When something is built to stand
Through cannonballs and siren calls
How clumsy and careless is it to construct it
On something as fickle as sand?
