Jumping Fences

To call or not - the question
To which there is the rule:
Give equality of attention
Or risk looking like the fool

Good fences make good neighbors
Or so wise men do say
But if you and I were neighbors,
I’d jump your fence today

Hope it’s not only my nature
To delight just the pursuit
Friend or lover, yet to know
But I’d like to know – that’s true.

I cannot tell the answer
The question’s unresolved
For I cannot see enough,
On this side of the wall

So I pick up the receiver,
Content to make the call,
I’d rather play the fool,
Even with his might fall
Then to be locked in my own prison,
For never trespassing at all.
