The New Seven Wonders?

The New Seven Wonders?
But EH's blunders
Will drive a big road through them all
Put some tat in the mound
Don't disclose what we found
Stick a campsite in Durrington Walls

If the doorway's too narrow
We'll widen the barrow
To let wheelchairs get inside West Kennet
And Avebury's ditch oughtta
Be filled up with water
We'll ignore when you shout "Gordon Bennet!"

Seven Wonders? That many?
We don't think we've got any
That haven't been paved and restored
With EH's protection
And metal detection
There's so little to add to the hoard

Could we settle for two?
Silbury, Avebury too
Maybe Stonehenge if we can agree
On the council decision
Of a two-mile incision
To bury the A303

Stanton Drew-Vegas weddings
Slaughter Stone fake beheadings
And souvenir shops full of bones
And the rich men in hearses
Can park near the Cursus
And bury their dead at the stones

So it's Wessex-orama
A crisis, no drama
A Wonderworld built on the plain
Where the visitors enter
The visitors' centre
And see everything from a train
