Larchlap…

our house, top left

Neighbours

 

When did ‘Hearts of Oak’

Turn to larchlap?

Our British empire shrank so much

That every inch of encroachment must

Set loose the legal shock troops-

For every privet leaf

Is sacred

 

I have rights

That prove you wrong

But this fence

(already skewed by weather)

Makes victims

Out of both of us
