Away from Lively Fence


The cobra stood hooded and hissed
I didn't lift my one of the back leg,
Like a dog. I feared and then pissed

Dogs, try to make their own kingdom
A war of smell or an ol-factory peg
But we rely upon rotten ugly wisdom.

How fearful we are, can’t be explained?
Is fear dwells in mind without restrained?
With this, I came to know, why peace lost.

Our behaviour and essence and the sense
So uncertain and for this we are away the
World of beast and away from lively fence

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
