Mill Street denuded but the telegraph pole remains

It is a bleak sight out there after, after
The developers deprived the wee creatures and
The small human beings too of anything apart from
A lone telegraph pole to see.
The birds have nowhere to nest, nor have the bees.
The apparatchiks of the developers ruthlessly routed out
Most trees and plants and ploughed it all up, leaving, let’s be fair
A few wee trees that don’t disguise the devastation caused.
Ah, the lone telegraph pole. The apparatchiks must have felt
That this was a “tree” too far to chop.
