Yellow barrier Thing

Of a morning I take a walk

Down by the river

Way from the chatter and talk

.

But today two furlongs in

There in a field

A bright yellow barrier thing

.

Set in a square five foot wide

What was it for?

To protect the grass inside?

.

This frame in yellow got me thinking

Perhaps it’s a bog

And the ground there was sinking?

.

Possibly a well right next to the river?

That didn’t seem right

So other answers my mind did deliver

.

Maybe there’s a gang of tiny men

Cutting the grass

In the safety of this pen?

.

Minituremen in grass, a little absurd

More likely a colony of

greater crested earth worms to be observed

.

As I circle this square wondering why

I noticed a sign hung on its side

A man from the council must have passed by

.

For there amidst forty acres of meadow

The sign must have been fixed

By a diligent rule reading fellow

.

They apologised for the inconvenience caused

and made reference to

work of an essential sort

.

Hmm, I thought what does that mean?

Is it an

entrance to a newly found coal seam?

.

And what of the ‘inconvenience’ claused?

It was not in my path so

Is it’s in the yellowness that offence is caused

.

Perhaps the sign was for the cows instead

Thank moo for

not munch here the sign should have read

.

Whatever the reason for the yellow barrier thing

I thank it

And most gratefully, for this poem it did bring

.

For this poem is like a that odd little square

A little out of place

In the meadow of more serious writing there

.

And if you have not enjoyed this little quirk

I apologize for any inconveniences causes

During the writing of this none essential work
