Usurpers

wall

They construct the wall and appoint fierce guards at each checkpoint.  How impressive they all look!

Until, that is, they notice the clouds gliding irreverently above their heads and the determined ants crawling up and over the wall each night.

Even tiny birds flout the fiercely defended border with impunity.

    1. So do I. Strangely, Albert likes staring at walls. He picks photographs of walls for his screensavers. He claims they’re artistic and he gets annoyed when I suggest that this obsessive interest proves he’s got issues……

    1. Very true – thanks James. I’ve been thinking a lot about walls recently, how they answer a deep need in us but don’t last, how they’re boastful, a little random…..not sure where I’m going with these thoughts…..
