Suburbia invasion

We were driving through the countryside in our big silver pickup
Dodge Ram to be exact
Enjoying the rolling hills
The green fields
The comfortably worn farmhouses
The geese

Then I saw that the wild immensity had been invaded
By the armies of Suburbia

Clusters of houses that cost a lot of money
All cut from the same cookie cutter
Gleaming arrogantly in the sun

They looked out of place
Unwelcome intruders
That had sprung from the grass

Beauty, smothered by the winds of change
