Favorite Quote:
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


Sad, withering, drooping leaves

No sign of vibrant life

Burned-out, smoldering cigarette

Existence cut off by a lethal knife

 

Gritty, dusty gravel

Lost its pebbly feel

Squeaky, vulnerable tire

Lost its free will

 

Tired, willowing branches

Weepy, brown reeds

They need someone to desperately help

Someone to plant new seeds

 

No good Samaritan has come to help them

They've met their horrible fate

The empty lot lies lifeless and cold

Oh, what a deplorable state
