out of work scare crows

I have lived next to an abandoned farm all of my life and I am 17 now and I am looking forward to going to university to study medicine. As you should know with the way the economy has been acting out the last couple of years there have been so many closures of farms, so many farmers have gone bankrupt and have had to sell and move onto something else. The farm I lived next to had always been abandoned and a couple of months ago me and my two friends decided to venture into the abandoned farm for a bit of fun.

I remember as a child my primary school took our whole class to visit a popular farm and I enjoyed looking at the animals and seeing how it all works. As me and my two friends Barry and Steve stepped onto the abandoned farm nothing felt off or unnerving but excitement ran through our veins. We were just talking amongst ourselves as we were covered in darkness and our mobiles phones being our only source of light. You could feel the uselessness of the land and you could tell how neglected it was and how it was not needed in society anymore.

Barry came to observe how we didn’t come across any broken bottles, used needles or how this abandoned farm land didn’t come to be some haven for junkies, drug dealers and anti social behaviour. It was abandoned but something was still looking over it and we all stopped for a moment to just take in the atmosphere of the empty farm. It was a very big farm and back in the olden days it use to soar in profits for our area and offered so many jobs.
