The last patch

The small course of bricks now
encloses a few pots
in a corner
and the remnants of some plants

the rest of the
erstwhile last patch
of "green belt" in the lane
has given way
to the tiled beauty
of a drive-in porch

so the number of cars
won hands down
defeating the
natural , untamed ugliness
of a few pots of seasonal flowers.

I'm suddenly reminded
of some toddlers in a school
uniformed,disciplined,
in the process of being civilised

walled to be tamed
another battle lost.
