Industrial Landscape

The view is not enhanced

by the large grey pylons,

whose wires extend for miles

like long threads of nylon.

Many years ago,

there was nothing but fields,

but progress arrived

and destruction it did wield.

An industrial landscape

stares back at you,

its own existence

now disappearing too.

Jobs that were promised

are now obsolete,

like the fields replaced

that were once full of wheat.

A sprawling concrete scar

on a once pristine surface,

left to crumble and rot,

no longer fit for purpose.

The day will come

when it has all being erased,

but it will be too late

for nature has being defaced.
