Church On That Ground!

On that ground once stood a church

but now a supermarket car park

long before silent fields of virgin soil

settlements of early human forms

living long before any technology

blighted natural land and ecology!

 

Through many generations flourished

births and deaths a human legacy

as their short lives passed in this place

battles fought this church the saviour

ravaged and destroyed always rebuilt

the centre of hope but also their guilt!

 

Though often sentiment is lost for profit

the church in recent times fell into decay

even listed status did not stop demolition

any graves and bones they were removed

making way for an ancient site to be sold

no care just sell the land the buildings old!

 

History has become a profitable business

but many think our heritage pointless!

 

Often the past is eradicated from the people!
