New builds.

Everywhere in London now is just
New builds— new builds; save up 10 years for one,
Knock down a petrol station, for one,
Lose sleep on a mortgage for one,
Fuck a new build, have you been in one?
They’re gross; echoey, badly lit, bad walls
Boast about being on the property ladder with one? 
Two years of toast for dinner, for one?
Decimate local communities by buying one?

Everywhere in London now is just
New builds— new builds: the new Tesco Express,
Cranes everywhere like vultures,
Architects, investors; social masturbators
Fucking the city away one new build at a time—
People scraping savings from relatives and partners
To just own just 33% of one—
Work 50+ hours a week, for one?
A city in shadows; brick towers made by sick men.
