Shifting Sands

Fencepost of the Week #97

And so it came to pass that the wise did plant their fenceposts in the soggy earth, and the posts did spring forth with all the fecund things of the damp ground - of the mosses and of the lichens and of the frogspawns, each in their season, and it was good. But the fool did plant his fenceposts in the dry sand and the posts they did remain bare - shamefull in their nakedness. And the sands did shift so that the fence would hold niether cattle nor flocks, but only the giraffe would be by it contain'd. And the people saw and did think him a ninny.
