A message to the security fence

daleboyer52.jpgI see you, unscaleable fence ... acting all unclimbable.... I see you taunting me, egging me on. I see you, fence, all challenging me on my way to work. Your chain link is so tiny, if I could only get my fingers in there. Your reputation precedes you. Your ego is present in every metre of your length. You took my parking space I sometimes use, you know. You are like that bully kid in school who sits on the game she wants to play with so no one else can play with it ... but while you are sitting on that game you can't play with it, either. I want to play with my parking spot sometimes, too, you know. Oh, great! Now you're sitting on the streetcars' toys, too! Hey, fence! I see you watching me walk to work, I see you lookin' at me. You should know that there are more people looking at you than you can look at the people.
