Not all trees are evergreen roborant
The deciduous is insidious and cormorant.
It lets its offspring go urchins errant.
Abandoned in the season of fall
Its multi-colours leaves fall
Some into the cracks between walls.
Others straight to the pond
In an act of suicide they did respond.
Still many get down,
To the ground
And the wind kicks them around.
They roam the streets no doubt
Gang up dastardly to fight
Into houses, push their way in and out
They slap peoplesí faces
Menacingly run between the legs
And restrict paces
Balking one from reaching places.
Oh, leaves do not take it personally,
You are not the only one treated cruelly!
I empathize you truly
I too was abandoned prematurely early.
