THERE is a pleasant scenic spot,
Where wildlife thrives within this plot.
We watch the birds soar in the breeze,
Then swoop to nestle in the trees.
Through this land there winds a beck,
With a tree-lined walkway where the fit do trek.
The young, the old, whether boy or girl,
This route’s a place we all enjoy.
But now this land off the Fens estate,
The developers want to desecrate.
We bought our homes with a guarantee
The land would remain development-free.
This buffer zone, our green field site,
Protects our homes both day and night.
Remove the barrier and crime will soar,
A crime-free zone it will be no more.
So, council, consider a vulnerable estate,
And policing costs before too late.
The developers can be cast aside,
With this you would regain much pride.
I have written my poem, I have sung my song,
It is time for me to move along.
I’ve done my bit, I have tried my best,
Now council planners please do the rest.
