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
