lines

the   world   was    ok

until      man      came

and started  drawing

lines   on    the    floor..

  1. Because man is still a beast when all is said and done, and he puts lines then builds walls and fences to protect ‘his’ territory from other predators but while we still practice such cruelty to other animals we are not civilised yet, at all.
    Nice write and thanks for visiting me.

  2. It’s not just poetry but also philosophy, you reminded me of Lefebvre and his production of social space theory. Intelligent writing here. <3

    Thanks for stopping by my entry.
    Take care and keep smiling.

  3. True this is, although it makes you wonder, if not for these lines would cultures and tradiotions bwe more blended? Would there still be racism? Questions that can’t be defenitly be answered. Either way, good job, short, but also thought provoking. keep it up. ^^

  4. I love that you wrote about lines instead of fences….fresh and clever. When I was growing up, there were very few fences. We could ride our horses a long ways and never have to open a gate. If our cows wandered away, we could always find them in their favorite spots nearby. And we sat on the front porch and talked to the neighbors as they walked by or stopped for a chat. There were no walls or fences around our houses, nor did we sit in the back yard…always the front. Seems more civilized and friendly to me. Here in Brazil, you will not find a house in town without a wall around it. Fortunately I live in the country without walls. I do have a fence but only because the cows love my lettuce. Thanks for a special write and the sweet memories it brought back for me. Hugs, pat

  5. I remember a lesson in my college: about man creating his/her own specific space – a place – by marking his/her surrounding. It is an act of possession. If human starts to value their possession more than sharing it with others, will the world ok with that? ;)

    Your poem is short but meaningful. Great job. d^.^b
