Defenses

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

Defenses
by Michael R. Burch

 
Beyond the silhouettes of trees
stark, naked and defenseless
there stand long rows of sentinels:
these pert white picket fences.
 

Now whom they guard and how they guard,
the good Lord only knows;
but savages would have to laugh
observing the tidy rows.
