I Carved A Name

I carved a name
in the bark of a tree
to which it became
part of our guarantee.

But it was cut down
with only the consent
of the people from town.
And so you went

to find nothing at all
only wait for it be done
but witnessed rainfall
in the presence of the sun.

We planted a new tree
in the midst of the town
no longer making a guarantee
that it won't be cut down.
