Wild Upminster


While the humans are sleeping

under the sodium lamps – the animals party

up and down the streets they go

playing in the peoples greens and

carefully trimmed fruit tree

They’re making a wonderous din

crashing over wheelie bins and feasting on the leftovers

all hidden from human ear by two plates of glass

when they are woken by the carnival

it’s just passed on by

Sleeping in their fox holes

or hidey holes in the trees

there’s just the litter pickers patrolling

picking up the remains of the night before
