Sound Planning

Rash landscapers would extirpate
lush, fructifying, native plants.
They sponsor laws to cultivate
a pristine garden that enchants
the bourgeoisie, and those content
to bask in an insipid yield.
But when barbed brambles have been rent,
and storms run rampant on the field
where unprotected pansies grow,
what hedge work will ensure they stand
should gale force winds begin to blow?
So I endorse designs less bland,
preferring gnarly shrubs and trees
to weather such uncertainties.
