for the sky and the bird

here sky I give you this tree
[though it doesn't really belong to me]
so it's branches may help to hold you up
and you willn't fall on my head
so it's leaves will clean you and flower for free
and their fragrance may cover the smell of the dead

here bird I give you this tree
[though it doesn't really belong to me]
that you may use it for food rest and family
should some person future not savvy its purpose
cut it down and remove it
or deny you its use
without placing another for all to peruse
may you crap on their head and whistle abuse

Strong meaning with the punch of passion in this poem Charlie thumbs up
It gets me riled up too the way our trees & forests are being eaten up by the greed of man!
Not to replace a cut tree is big crime to mother nature..professor
