Good fences make good neighbours, they say

Marking the line between mine and yours

But maybe some say that what’s yours should be theirs

So increase the fences

Add ‘Beware of the dog’ and ‘These premises are alarmed’

Put up the security cameras

Build those fences higher and higher

Lock the doors and bar the windows

Until every man’s home is his fortress

And we look out over our gun turrets

Keeping watch for our neighbours

Prisoners of our own fear

Arm yourselves, and wait

and get them, before they get you
