Merry Meadow lane,
fifteen-hundred and forty three:
The new housing development ecstasy.
Say goodbye to the Douglass farms
and welcome the new duplexes with identical charm.

Marvel at the maze of magnificent machines
that line your custom countertop’s granite gleam.
While the fabric of our past is being ripped at the seams.

The endless necessities,
For your bedrooms and baths.
Equipped with chrome handles and Jacuzzis,
Only at the small cost of destroyed animal habitats.

And I hope you enjoy your lawn:
Dirt yard with premature trees.
Just enough to satisfy
Everyone’s overdevelopment needs.

So welcome home
To your new community
The limits of suburban opportunity.
