Chainsaw Symphony

Concrete trucks sit patiently waiting

for their turn to tame the land

Chainsaws drown out the sounds

of the ecosystem

Metal-mouthed equipment

strips the ground bare

Vinyl siding and manicured greenery

replace the wildness

of briar-covered trails

Echoes of everything lost

clings to the hum of endless traffic

It seems that construction of new neighborhoods, mini malls, and businesses never ends. Any square inch of trees and green gets bulldozed and the displaced animals get blamed for being animals, for wanting food and wanting to survive.
