My fellow masses! My hopeful citizenry!
Here comes to you samueldpoetry
Can you hear my reverberating voice?
Are you leaking the juice of my jamboree?
My poetic jamboree of sincerity
Must we accept these gravels blown Into our democratic staring eyes?
Indebtedness is neocolonialism
When will this government Caesar cease
Selling cunningly our souls to the world bank?
For exchange of gold from the world bank
There is fire on this mountain, no where to run
Day in day out, each break of the morning
I open my iris, the unbelievables I see
I see elderly arms milking publicly the
National cow one after the other
The greedy soldier-ants are draining the ants’ reservoir
The selfish fishermen are monopolizing the pond
The Napoleon is plotting against The Snowball
O my good gracious Lord and God,
Is this the new era animal farm?
The problem of the eye is the problem of the nose
We son of the soil_ wearing crown of this fatherland
Hate it or like it, we’re now wearing crown of thorns;
Monkey is working, baboon is chilling
The hands that borrow are the hands stealing.

The Fence by Lenrie Peters is a self-reflection. It is a poem that reflects the worries of the poet or the poem speaker against so many inner forces.
The themes of the poem are:
(1) The inability to justify one’s actions of good or bad deeds.
(This theme is the major reason the poem is considered a moral one; “My head goes round and round/ But I have not been drinking/ I feel the bouyant wave; I stagger/ It seems the the world has changed her garment/ but it is I who have not crossed the fence/ So there I lie/ There where the need for good/ and the “doing good” conflict/ there I lie” the quote speaks much of the poet’s concerns)
(2) The unphatomability of humans desired ambitions.
(Lenrie Peters shows that no matter how humans strive for achievements, the balance between past and future will remain confusingly immeasurable: “There where the dim past and future mingle/ their nebulous and aspirations/ there I lie”)
(3) The act of aging and its effects on human beings
(In line 10 of the poem, human body is said to age relentlessly leaving the mind with shadows of memories and most of the unwanted things human; things like shrinkages, natural weaknesses, gradual blindness, etc. “There where the body ages relentlessly/ and only the feeble mind can wander back/ there I lie in open-/ souled amazement/ There where all the opposites arrive/ to plague the inner senses but do not fuse/ I hold my head; and then contrive/ to stop the constant motion”)
Ask me what I feel I feel love Love Love Love Love in my heart Love everlasting Forevermore For someday I’ll kiss your lips I’ll kiss your lips I’ll kiss your lips My mind keeps telling me this My darling miss Over longing you’s giving me hepatitis A very deadly disease So cease posting me ‘Cos you’re pretty and clean Like a marine queen with a fin I’m not as handsome as Walcott I know You can make me Chamberlain I will bake you some cake Buy you pancake Make you laugh Like you wanna break your ribs While tears flow down your cheek Ah! I can’t believe you’re declining I’ll drink anything and die like a fly So bring me Piriton Tetracycline Ampicillin Mix it with margarine Iodine Can you imagine The itching Your declining’s Causing to my skin?
