DEFENCE OF THE GREEN BELT
We will forever rue the day
If these vandals get their way
To cause environmental harm
By building houses on Lodge Farm.
The plans comprise a new school as well,
For the scheme includes an intent to sell
The site where current buildings stand,
So a state-funded school is trading land!
We surely cannot help but feel
There’s something shady in this deal.
Is there collusion under hand,
A trade which we don’t understand?
So we must fight them tooth and nail
To ensure that sanity may prevail,
To ensure the wretched plans are blocked
And the rape of Effingham is stopped.
David J. King (Jan. 2015)
