our house, top left



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
