Betrayal Poem by Roger Hudson

Betrayal



Towering over the town
Giant cranes glitter
Bejewelled with Christmas lights
Raising a smile of
Delight from children
Lying in jolly disguise
As they pile storey on storey
Shopping centre
Moneylust
Obscuring
Dwarfing
Ancient towers and traders
Harbours and markets
Bankrupting
Neighbourhood shops
Family firms
In inexorable
Seasonal takeover
Ho! Ho! Ho!

Kings of construction
Judasklike in feigning favours
Guide Herod megabucks
To the slaughter
