Now I remember the fury

Each day 

they put up

more and more 

fences

(the council)

they didn’t ask (us)

nobody needed fences

the fences seemed to be

to

protect the roads 

from pedestrians.

we (people) 

could only cross the roads

at specific 

points.

some fences 

were (even) built 

in front of walls

seemingly to stop 

people 

touching 

the walls.

the walls were flyovers

for cars

don’t touch the flyover for cars.

….so irked were the citizens

of Crankstonhill

that they created this

to frighten the council.
