Nature, nurture, not

Those from more rural locales
find urban approaches
to all things nature

Nurturing of lawns
cajoling green lushness
only to immediately cut it
once it gets too high, too lush

symmetric containment of flowers
pride in set aside green spaces
massive cement bowls
adorning boulevards

transformation of
rural America to urban for
those who have grown on the land
find the city more nurture than nature

contrived in it’s simplistic
approach to bringing
the real to those

bring the country
to the big city – people
nature and you’ll observe
neither in their natural habitat
