In the villiage of chain-linked fences

In the villiage of chain-linked fences

A Poem by Curiosity's Virtuoso

A constricted fence chokes nothing but life

In the village of chain-linked fences all is well
From the merchant's apple seeds to the prisoner's cell
Where steel holds the barrier's, thick and strong
On which common men dare never to stomp upon

In the village of chain-linked fences all is the same
From the household colors to street names
Where people gather together, as if one family
Prattling about exodus' uncontainable calamity

In the village of chain-linked fences all is controlled
From a child's opinion to the stories told
Where change is almost forgotten, home dwells under in one phylum
Together non-spirited eyes rot in their dormant asylum

In the village of chain-linked fences all is not fain
From the mind's powerful belligerence to wind through a horse's mane
Where thoughts are alienated with domination's contrive
All insight welcome is only blindly formulated to die

In the village of chain-linked fences, all of which cannot be
From the vast oceans to salty shore seas
Where breath resumes and mortal persona is not the same
Who ever would want to live in humankind's net of tame?
This is why we fight rules of the game

a clever piece, in a way fences are the man of the sixties. has a nice political and social theme to it and again very clever. feels like a movement poem from the beat writers. again very well done, you show an amazing talent with perfect form.
