Demolishing Heritage. It’s a Crying Shame

It’s cheaper to demolish

Heritage and more

Than take the time and effort to

Conserve, and then restore

Developers have too much clout

Complaints on deaf ears fall

Their voices simply disappear

In dust from wrecker’s ball

Everything for profit

Got to have it quick

Maximising landspace

Shit it makes me sick

I was considering remove the expletive in the last line,
but thought, no, this really makes me angry.
Poetry, after all, is meant to express how the poet feels.
