Poetry – A trail of corpses

A trail of corpses

 

Tree by tree                       pond by pond

Ditch by ditch                    field by field

Hedge by hedge               bush by bush

Verge by verge                 copse by copse

 

We chop, we culvert      we cut, we mow

We fill, we build              we rip, we bulldoze

We burn

 

Without a thought

A thousand tiny cuts

Leaving a trail of corpses
