Goodbye T46

t46-ripOn Hackney Marsh the poplars stand forlorn –

The dingy old pavilion built of bricks

Dilapidated – pot-holed carpark.  Mourn

With us!  They’ve come to fell T Forty-six,

A blameless poplar standing in the way

Of progress, victim of the shady tricks

Of those who seek to justify their pay

By filling up the open space with cars

And noise and fumes, converting green to grey.

The trees, the birds, these spaces all are ours!

We want to keep them green and free for all,

And not enclosed by roads and gates with bars.

The few remaining poplars still stand tall,

Confined behind the new pavilion’s wall.
