They Came-In Memory Of Dalkeith Country Park

They came early in the morning
Skulking without warning
Wave on wave o faceless black
Who drove them diggers down the track
Chainsaws, cutters, battons too
Came to kick us black and blue
No emotions hearts o steel
A chilling sight starkly un-real
Yes they came wave on wave
To hack our trees into the grave
Gnarling, snarling angry men
Time and time and time again
As one by one the trees did cry
And i must confess so did i
Causethey came with hate and malice
To destroy our woodland palace
Just to build that concrete shit
They came and trashed us bit by bit
Yes they came and dragged us all away
To build that sleasy motorway
Then they came and put us in that dock
But then they got a righteous shock
As the judge said what for defending a tree
And rightly set us good and free
But they had still trashed our magik wood
A thing of beauty gone for good
Yes thats what happened when they came

    Nice one Will. Haven't seen you for a while - are you still about in Edinburgh?
