(378) Turbulent Crippled Emotions (Part Three)

Grow and double it did,
Costing more than just a few quid.
A massive disheveled confusion,
certainly not a complex illusion.

The city paid a visit on a bright sunny day.
Poor Mary could no longer have it her way.
Snippers and pliers were put into use.
City’s men working hard to pry the structure loose.

The yard was filled with an eclectic mix,
like a magician with many hats pulling out tricks.
Umbrella’s, tables, shelf units, wood slabs and more.
oh yes, lets not forget those rugged old doors.

The neighbors looked on in constant query.
What will happen with good old Mary.
Is this it, will she leave things alone,
or will she start over when the men go home.

Several days pass, the fence is torn down.
Not a splinter in sight, clear is the ground
The neighbors are worried and await their fate.
What’s in store with the next new gate..

The day of reckoning in late afternoon.
A crew arrived, not a moment too soon.
A fence of lattice begins to take shape.
Pleasing to the eye this brand new gate.
Still the neighbors rest unsure,
is Mary’s mind now clean and pure.
Only the future will tell,
for now Mary seems well.

To be continued? ? ? ? ? ?

Very interesting series. Individual rights versus social laws are brought to attention so well. Top it with illness and individual isolation.....A little compassion and support for people lonely like Mary could go a long way. Thanks for sharing.
Hello my friend I have read all three in the series, to whch you have an epic going on here, , with depth and a definite style with a definite flare, , your words are amazing, along with the morals to whch you spread with this trio and I am sure there will be more in some way or the other, , , very very well written and a fabulous sequence too.Blessings....

Here you are again tackling tough issues but in story format.......you always have so much to say....don't judge this book....she has something to say.....can't wait for the next one....I think every neighborhood has someone like this.....we have a house that the individual sculpt with items people throw away....then paints them bright colors.....most people think it is ugly and never have gotten to know the person behind it.....who is a wonderful warm person.....I guess they can't think outside the box: O)
