Growth at all Cost



Where have all our trees gone
In 10 years of infill?
We have to pack the people in
So trees we have to kill

Trees and green surroundings
Climate change combat?
We need them for well-being
Mentally, all that

Wholesale destruction of our trees
Must stop, must not go on
Premier and Minister
Are you listening?….


No?….


Our ‘growth-at-all-costs’ policy
is more important



Addended poem

As Poet

As poet I can write concerns
Upon the screen you see
But people in authority
Won’t heed my poetry


Your task it is to document
What you hear and see
But poet you won’t change the world
With your poetry
