Crimson’s Creative Challenge #190 #Rights of way

I couldn’t believe the length of the grass

for it was high enough to reach my waist

the sign was a warning I could not pass

and turning in anger my steps retraced

and though I’m not known to be a moaner

that through this so-called private land

an unmarked ancient way still ran

so anyone walking up to the moor

this sign should continue to ignore.
