Nature in the dock
people of our old streets have gone,
the old streets themselves have gone
those new spaces now live as one huge meadow
home to wildlife and wild flower's
untouched as yet by land snatching developers
will it stay that way or is it to be imprisoned
under the feet of a housing estate giant?
if so I'm depending on appreciative ramblers
to slip as many hacksaws of protests as possible
through the bars
before the sentence is passed.
