Preamble

“We are the Village Green Preservation Society.¬†
God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties.
We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity.
God save little shops, china cups, and virginity.
We are the Skyscraper Condemnation Affiliates.
God save Tudor houses, antique tables, and billiards.

“Preserving the old ways from being abused.
Protecting the new ways, for me and for you.
What more can we do?”
