Oh Emerald Leaves Turn your backs to the breeze Sheltered under your canopy Wild creatures are busy. Small pig things with small feet Rustle by in a heartbeat Birds two of a feather Nest upright together Twig branch to the tree trunk Grow anew from the plant junk Feast on dead leaves to grow more Sun sandwich with forest floor Small pig things with small feet Rustle by in a heartbeat Birds two of a feather Nest upright together Rainfall in a grey town Stabs sharp as it beats down Harsh feeling and harsh sound Angry shots from the sky’s frown Big people with big feet Rush past in a heartbeat Girls two of a feather Walk closely together Oh life in the treescape Top to toe in my dreamscape Worlds apart from my winter Be my summer sister.

Fatberg 03:52
Oh metal and stone Grit and ancient bones Flowing under the ground Splashy watery sound Mirroring the tapestry Of human activity Where we all up above Live, argue and love Tunnelling through the rock below Rodent fodder is rife Waster and water and energy flow Traffic of human life Deep down in the gloom What is it you see? White monster of doom Yuk, yucky yucky Everything's wrong with the waterways Interrupted flow Clogging the city's arteries Trouble down below Fatberg, fatberg. Deep down in the gloom What is it you see? White monster of doom Yuk, yucky yucky Fatberg, fatberg.
