"On Guard."

(Some thoughts on fencing.)

rises and

cuts a

sharp silhouette,

that slices

in two directions,
severing the

hopes of many

and many

that get through

find themselves

working for

menial wages

without insurance

living in worse

conditions than

what they left.

I am sure many

wish that they

had never


such walls.
