McMansions

 

They're building lots of houses

On a house estate

Two-story grey McMansions

Houses which I hate

 

Pretentious and all bland-like

Standing tall and proud

Built so close together

Not bothered that they crowd

 

Cement-rendered all grey-like

No texture to their face

Character? they have none

No metal-interest lace

 

But hey poet, we're built on

Green grass, once grazed by sheep

Let's give three cheers for progress

McMansions, I could weep

Progress made
Don't complain
Poet Don
Don't be arcane

Poets like you
We do not need
We want progress
Not your breed

Get lost critics.......

Irony of today
Progress made
Grasses fake
Plastic plants
Crowded avenues
Nature abused
Phew!! Phew!! Phew!!

Environmentalist poet!!
