Walls

Before we build a great wall
We will make  neighbor pay
As  we are walling him out,
Walling ourselves slowly in.

We have lived in walled city.
Walls are where forts were
Before the invader but now
Their bricks sport banyans.

We wait for our dark crows
To land on glass spiked wall.
They deputize for our dead
Who come to eat yearly rice.
