Death of the trees. But then, that's progress . . . isn't it?


 


 


Tall upside-down whiskbrooms


All a‑scatter


Stand proudly whispering the secret of the woodlands.


 


They hear heavy pounding


 


  TO THEIR LEFT. . .


                                  


                TO THEIR RIGHT. . .


 


The threatening noise is insistent,


Becoming louder, Louder, LOuder, LOUder, LOUDer, LOUDEr, LOUDER


Until its' arrogance reaches the heavens.


 


It is their fate.


In farewell, the whiskbrooms stand proud


And, for the last time, they whisper the secret of the woods.


They are accepting.


They will never fight.
