A
Tall
Emerald
Towerof
Needles and
Branches
Rapidly striving
To reach the sun
Growing,tall and thick
An individual in a dense
Emerald crowd ofrelatives
Trying to win the
Claim to incredibly valuable
Sun, water andfood which also
Happen to be the same exact thing
Everyone else needs tolive and flourish
A massive chainsaw is primed
The key to a skidder isplaced in its ignition
The birds in the dense underbrush are flushed
Allunbeknownst to the ultimate victim, with the
DayGlo name tag upon its huge,round, valuable trunk
It will be cut into hundreds of minuscule portions andsold.
It comes at a price and it's not only
$50 for a 22-foot,
#2grade, kiln-dried
Douglas Fir's accomplishments
