Headline Poem 7/8/14 -- Towers and Barbed Wire

Today's poem is inspired by a post about the history of barbed wire. 

Towers and Barbed Wire 

While trying to escape 
From towers and barbed wire,
I said hurtful things 
to you 

Which -- if there'd been a 
mirror to my face 
you'd have known,
was talking to myself. 
     All along.
