Fork

 

 

A kingdom rested here,

with tenants and landlords,

travellers and squires

knowing their place

in the scheme of things,

with only the ravaging

of millipedes and moles

to contend the continuum

and taprooted dandelions

everyone could rely upon

to maintain the status quo,

but now the world

is turning upside down

with this precious land

torn asunder by metal spikes

to a fine tilth.
