Mum’s Garden Full Of Birdsong

There’s a tall tree in mum’s garden

That needs chopping

A Blackthorn

It and the Holly beside it

Spreading up up way beyond their bound

Worrying my mum that someone may complain

“All the world’s a fence.”

Like doubts, we all have them or know someone who has them.

What does your Fence say about you?  Phantom Decker? Patio Poseur ? Wind Damaged? In Need Of Creosote?

Who knows? Who cares! 

Here is the Fence of a famous person. Can you guess who it belongs to?

The History Of The Fence – Part1

The history of the fence is the history of humankind.

Fences date back to 64,365 BCE to ancient Mesopotamia. Interestingly, the earliest known gate appears in 23,687 BCE again in Mesopotamia.

The sadly rotted “Great Fence Of Sumer” was constructed in 8,456 BCE by King Ibetshesalezzer to keep his concubines, porcupines and woodbines safe from marauding Pirates from the East (who themselves would adopt Fence technology in later centuries). The Great Fence was said to be so big and woody that it could be seen from outer space. A bold claim.

OK! Whose Fence Is That Above?

Prince Charles!

Here is an exclusive picture of His Royal Fenceness enjoying his Fence (looks like he is about to hop over it to do a spot of scrumping in next door’s garden!)


He goes everywhere with his sausage
