Unmapped

#Socs

source : The Fourth Bear, Jasper Fforde, P.155

when you look out towards the river

you’ll spot a swathe of green

amongst the towering skyscrapers

its the prettiest place you’ll have seen

The fathers are sat perplexed at the mo,

for they’ve been offered some cash to bestow

so long as the man wi the concrete

can dig up the trees that do grow

And the maps are recording it “Untouched”

so it costs less for builder to build

and no chance of digging up something

that will see sight of money unforfilled

But locals that live there are anguished,

and want to keep their patch of green

they’re making a move on the town hall

to ensure that the diggers not seen
