Under heavy siege
The dumpster is an unassuming but deadly foe.
For almost twenty years Child World has been out of business and the castle's keep has been occupied by Mardens, a "surplus and salvage" store. Mardens is sort of a retailing vulture, moving among disaster areas, trailer truck crashes, and bankrupt big box stores to bring cheap, almost-good-as-new merchandise to Maine. Apparently they've finally realized that maintaining a castle is superfluous to their business plan.
So now, the Child World castle is under heavy siege. It will probably fall any day now to construction workers intent on replacing a bizarre anachronism (of the 1980s) with something innocuous and coated in bland stucco: the architectural equivalent of Muzak.
In the meantime, if anyone needs a free battlement, inquire at the dumpster on outer Brighton Ave. If the first one is taken, a second should be available soon.
