They are building houses everywhere
no more countryside looking completely bare
Construction vehicles on small lanes
the view of small diggers to big tall cranes
The landscape is changing in a big way
'I remember when that was all fields' you'll hear someone say
They don't build any more schools and doctors surgeries though
leading to a huge impact on queues and the general flow
We will just have a concrete jungle busy with folk
cars will be plenty with their fumes to make us choke
The poor wildlife, where will they go?
Countryfile may end as there will be nothing to show
Too many people on this big old planet
needing more homes or should we just ban it?
Fight to keep our green fields and fresh air
Are we bothered? Do we really care?
I do, I don't want to lose the belt of green
some of our scenery is the best ever seen
Let's stop now and rest for a while
leave a little greenery, a square foot, a yard or even a mile
Thank you for reading today.
