8.1 Concrete Jungle

3

It is called concrete jungle.

4

We used to stroll barefoot through the overgrown grass,.

5

Its morning dew tickling our feet

6

Now we step outside onto the rugged concrete

7

No more natural

than the over processed food we eat

8

We used to walk down the snow sprinkled trail,

9

Maybe catch a glimpse of a bobcat, playing eye tricks with its tail

BOBCAT

10

Now there is only one type of bobcat we see The one that is fur free,

11

clearing the pavement of all debris

12

We used to walk through a footpath in a forest of pine The smell intoxicating our lungs and mind

13

Now the only smell to be found comes from plastic trees Swaying on my rear-view mirror, labelled pine breeze

14

We used to watch the valley play hide and seek Shadowed by the mountain's immeasurable peak Considered the largest thing known to man

15

Now skyscrapers are the most extravagant and titanic part of the plan

16

We used to sit next to the stream, the wind caressing our crown

17

Watching the magnificent untamed beasts roam far, far from town

18

Now they are just characters of folktales, memories we pass down An adjective to describe someone, no more a noun

19

This could be our reality If we continue to live in impracticality No more vast, endless oceans-

20

Only littered swamps, the colour of a witch's potions.

21

No more soaring birds overhead-

Only planes, so loud they rock your bed.

22

No more woods

No more natural goods

23

We have little time To change our self centered, one track minds Before we are stuck with a great heap of jumble Left only with an artificial concrete jungle.
