Says a Tree to Man


I filled your stomach
you chopped my vertebrae
I lent you shelter
you snatched my quarters
now you can’t bear heat
you grumble then you grieve
what you sow you reap
garbage dumped in heaps
there’s time to restore
go back to your source
replant me threefold
retrieve green and gold
I promise you’ll gain
what you lost in vain
