Plunder and Progress?

A line drawn in the grass by blades of steel
separates nature from the nurtured, 
Clover and Kentucky Bluegrass must not 
fraternize with upstanding flower citizens. 

Green lawns drain life sustaining aquifers 
so backyard BBQs can grease the wheels 
of social conformity as a measuring stick 
to ensure the Jones have not caught us. 

Would we be better off buried under concrete all around, never a green shoot of life to be exposed?
Can Mother Nature harness Lady Justice 
to balance the equation of plunder and progress?
