      and why, do you ask, should the fabled and dear establishment known
      as Holly Hill be thus dismembered and cast asunder, the last tower to
      crumble before the onward rushing ravenous hordes known
      as "Developers"...

      the woods to fall groaning under the cold steel blades of the
      buchehawgs, the deer to scatter mindless in terror to the forever-
      lost freeway meridans, thence likely to find a sad end under the
      wheels of some passing cell-zombie-in-a-minivan...
      the birds to return in shock (if at all), when the noise and dust of
      the clearcutting departed, to find only a briefly muddy desert
      suddenly mysteriously sprouting construction equiptment and square
      piles of rough stones...

      and the house itself, abandoned, empty, bereft of companionship,
      becoming ever more dampish and mildewy, thus morosely lingering on
      for a few cosmicaly-insignificant moments as some sort of garish
      caricature of a once-fine country mansion gone to seed, the quaint
      style and fading historical significance drawing a steadily-dimishing
      stream of the curious, until at last it too fell under the wrecking
      bars of the savages...

      would anyone know of the ancient goat yard upon the hill, or the
      hours and days of happiness (and sorrow) known there by this passing
      traveler?
      even now, the mounds of remembrance and memorial vanish into the
      earth under the relentles rain of Time.

      or would at last those few remaining sheltering pines fall too, no
      longer allowed to remain even as a few token tall trees in someone's
      anonymous suburban backyard...
