It’s really quite a bother, how they say they have big plans –
and those erstwhile city fathers give to retail – public lands.
It seems a dreadful shame; those vistas could be lost,
and the view is not the only thing, ‘development’ would cost.
There’s clean air and lovely sunsets, clean water in the bay –
not to mention the cool breezes, that we need on those hot days.
I’m just a simple person, and when I see those lovely views,
I wonder who decides why they … should be for just a few.
