A Poem about Paper!!



Parchments despatched with great loving care
donated daily from tree's in despair,
to our door they doth freely float
like Autumn leaves, signatures do tote..

Piling high in decaying mounds
await patiently, to be raked through the grounds
next years compost, or today's scattered mess
do they pile high, till one changes the address!

Remarkable leaves change from brown to blue
have intimate affairs, with officers of same hue
amazingly resilient at all attempts to obscure
leaving one's life and credit in the sewer

What the AMAZON lacks from  it's daily diminishing
Govt replaces, sowing shoots for the finishing!

Enjoyed this much!! It's true and everyday we do get all the ads, fliers, etc. in our mail boxes. Our shredders become jammed because of too much paper being pushed through. A nice write.
Reviewed by D Johnson 7/7/2008
nice write, and filled with so much truth.

Reviewed by Lois Christensen 7/7/2008
Paperwork overloading everyone, files stuffed to the kilter, each transaction has to have a copy to it, so much paperwork gets to me, but sometimes it need be.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/7/2008
Cherry Pie you said it. The amount of paper that just comes in the fliers thrown on my front porch every week (often duplicated three or four times in other papers as well) needs a small forest just to sustain my own neighborhood. Are Walmart, Zellers and other major department stores that pressed for profit that we need to wipe out our wildlife to provide for them.

Trees are one of the few renewable resources.
But not if they are cut down to make room to grow
Ethanol producing plants.

A wise write, Chezza; very well written! BRAVA!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas (Kaz). :D

such truth here-well and cleverly penned
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 7/6/2008
I've heard of being buried under paperwork, but this is ridiculous! So sad, it's funny - because it's spot on truth - well done, Chezza!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
