Between Home and the Wilds

High atop the wall between home and the wilds

sentries stand watching chaos

and pass deception down to those below

whose world begins and ends at the wall

happy merely to watch the sky

so they know when to take shelter from the rain

and listen more closely to the messages from above

a constant reminder to the dreamers

that a world exists beyond them

and a lullaby to the rest, sleeping soundly

What’s your biggest time-waster?
