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

    Beautiful art The work has spots in my opinion Thought not fully expressed or feelings held back It blurr the stated message Yet the intent of this art is unique and appreciated (Report) Reply
