Is Mother Nature about to wail

As our local politicians fail

To stem the property developers’ greed?

They plan to flatten our estate.


And for new homes we'll have to wait

To stand against them is a need

For it is in the developers’ spite

Their plan to rip up nesting sites

All to feed their bloated greed.


They’ll tear down trees and build a bridge

Once a home to bird and midge

To the end of nowhere it will lead.


Will they next drain the Welsh Harp Reservoir

For them, their plans can't go too far

They’d like to see the Lakeland bleed

So, why should long term residents be forced out

Just because they lack legal clout

Of this warning, please take heed.
