The Fence Post Rock

The Fence Post Rock

A Chapter by Dave Brown




Quite late, well, bout midnight

I snuck into our fenced backyard

We’d heard some funny sounds

And I needed to look, real hard


Everything looked quite normal

Except for a slight fence post vibration

So, I settled in a hidey spot

Prepared to wait for the duration


During a long, hugely bored yawn

I heard a great clomping sound

And to my utter amazement 

Those posts were all jumping round


In a flash, they jumped to new places

While some music also played

And although I tried to resist

My enjoyment was completely betrayed


Before I knew it was happening

My wife was there on her feet

And we were swaying to the sound

Of a magical, intoxicating beat


The fence posts hopped hole to hole

And after allaying all our alarms  

We both joined into “The Fence Post Hop”

As they displayed their dancing charms

I was just in a brief night thing

And she was near not quitely dressed

There were a few embarrassed posts

Somethin which I shudda guessed

And way out in the back forty

Where waiting posts usually just lay in mist

All those creosoted, pointy-enders

Were doing the "I Wannabea Fence Post" twist


The music played through the night

As we all, “Fence Post Rock and Rolled”

By the time the whole eve was through

I felt at least, one hundred years old


We now leave them alone at night

To enjoy their rock and roll

As long as each morning there is still

One fence post in each hole

This is truly one of your best off-the-charts wild-imagination story forays! You really outdid yourself here & also I love the way your storyline makes logical sense in an abstract wildass way! This is a sure sign that your own personal fenceposts are not solidly moored . . . something I've been suspecting for a while, but you've confirmed it now! I wake up every morning, just hoping to have the same number of fenceposts, wherever they may roam! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
