Listen to me!
There’s this field...that used to be wonderful! And green! This field of green green green grass. So lush.
There was this poll that I took recently. And when it asked what I was looking forward to most this spring...I clicked “running (maybe barefoot) through grassy fields”.
So Listen to me!
There’s this stupid stupid Weigels being built near my home.
Lucky me, I live on a dead-end street.
A dead-end street that no one can build anything but residential stuff on.
Not so for the green grassy field that I pass
EVERY. DAY. On the way. to. school.
THAT field used to have cows in it...until a couple years back...or so it seems. Then, the cows moved farther back from the road and into the land.
Closer to the little old man and little old lady’s little old house that they’ve lived in for their whole entire life together!
and to build a Weigels on THAT field, next to THEIR house!
Listen to me!
I passed that field and a vaguely thought about how I wanted to take a picture of the cows and of the field, especially when they started advertising the Weigels being built there.
But did I?
There was always more time.
But guess what now?
That field. That green, grassy, wild-flower-dotted field...it’s gone...it’s all been bulldozed away. THIS MORNING! This VERY MORNING it was NOT like that!
I AM SO MAD!!!!
I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THEY BULLDOZED
ALL. OF. THAT. BEAUTIFUL. LAND!
WHY??? WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BUILD A STUPID STUPID WEIGELS ON THAT CORNER?? WHY NOT GO RUIN SOMEBODY ELSE’S CORNER?? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE HECK YOU ARE DOING???
...but you don’t care...
...go listen to Jessie J.
FORGET ABOUT THE PRICE TAG! why don’t you?
It’s all for the money.
The convenience. ... Yuck.
The happiness the Weigels will bring. ... Ew. Yeah, while you little kids of the future go get white powdered, processed donuts from Weigels, you won’t be thinking about the beautiful, grassy, field that used to be home to the cows...and always, welcoming the dots and sprays of white and yellow wild flowers in the field.
(**ps. this isn't that grassy field, as I said, I never got a picture of it. I'll try to get the picture of what's left tomorrow, though. here's the website I got this pic from: http://www.loudounwildlife.org/HHGrassyFields.htm**)
