DEATH OF A LEAF
From the Mind of John McElveen
DEATH OF A LEAF or
PAVED PARADISE AND PUT UP A PARKING LOT
THANKS JONI, FOR SEEING THIS YEARS AGO.
Dropping by the Millions, being blown by high powered Electric Hogs from one Angry Neighbors yard to the next, until one industrious soul bags em and tags em and sends them in PLASTIC bags to a landfill.
What a grotesque death for something that falls gently and makes mulch, the Earth recycling her materials since the beginning. Man once again steps in and in our need to keep things tidy and neat, we usurp what Ma Nature needs to do.
Sure they fall on your Vehicle and clog up drains and gutters..but they were here long before us. And now, following said leaf are the Acorns. These too raked and raped lest we step on one and say Ouch. How sad.
I guess I'll leave you with the song of progress above and say,
UNTIL SPRING THEN!
WHEN WILL WE DECIDE THAT THESE SERVE NO PURPOSE AND CUT THEM DOWN BEFORE THEY BLOOM?
LOVE TO ALL
