Best Poem of Edward Hester

Fences

A good horse and some open prairie
Can free the mind and e‘motions daily

So me ‘n Symbol a’riding go
To find some space and room to grow

But I rode a mile, and what I found
Was miles of fences all around

Now how’s a mind suppose to grow
When round in circle’s all it goes

It’s hard to have an open mind
When fences, fences ‘re all you find.
