On open plains - 2nd draft

On open plains - 2nd draft

On open plains, vast the suburbs grew
Replacing grass and kangaroo
With mapped out streets and traffic lights
From workers with theodolites
To introduce a new the next milieu.

Gone the bilby, the reptiles too
Out with the old, in with the new
A different vista on star filled nights
On open plains.

Is it possible they never knew
Of nature's loss that would ensue
When progress of unequal might
To Did force this ecological flight
On open plains.
