They’re chopping down a field of trees
in the name of education,
they need the wood you see
“For the pencils!” they all plea
but its not just education
but houses and furniture too
there’s plots of brown compacted soil
where once – a lush forest grew
And passing through the area
down a freshly tarmacked road
you can see where JCBs dug up land
to build some new abode
But Parents children and Grandparents too
don’t like losing the plot of their trees
so they’re stood outside the entrance
hoping someone will hear their pleas.
For what is the sign of progress ?
clogged roads and towers – they’re not keen
they prefer their homes nice and quiet
in their oasis of green.
