Dormouse Street

Call that new street or housing estate after a badger or shrew and buyers will soon forget the chemical waste and that their garden was the former site of a bomb factory

Broken concrete. Pylons. Filthy, stagnant creek
Marketers decide they’ll call it Squirrels’ Leap
It’s Builders 1 Newts 0 as the digging starts
Hedgehog Hollow is soon added to the charts
Block paving, bay trees. Granite island kitchens
Having more than next door won’t stop the bitching
Half a million mortgage, the price of this deceit
The lengths folks will go to live on Dormouse Street
