Christian Morgenstern is best remembered today as a writer of humorous verse. "Der Lattenzaun" tells the story of a picket fence: one day, an architect removed the space between the pickets and built a house with it. The sight of a fence without the spaces between the pickets was so vulgar that the town council had it taken away. Meanwhile, the architect had fled to Africa or America. In the song, I tried to keep up the spirit of the absurd that is found in the text. Note that the singer should sing the upper E in bar 62 only if he or she cannot reach the lower one.
