Mr. Oak

And the leaves fell from the mighty oak

And I said to him,

“Mr. Oak, why do drop your belongings?”

 

“Well child,”

he replied

“They become too heavy to carry”

 

And I said to him,

“Well Mr.Oak,

why collect them in the first place?”

 

He then took his branch

and struck me with it

“Foolish question, my child!”

 

I knew not to cross Mr. Oak

For he was formidable in battle.

He had killed many in the war.

 

“Mr. Oak,

Father Pine told me that I should turn the other cheek.”

So I turned the other cheek.

 

Mr. Oak spanked me with his branches.

“Enough for today child.

Come back tomorrow for another lesson.”

 

I left the forest

Fulfilled

as ever.
