Inverness, FL, USA
I understand this might be a controversial
subject, I'm bracing myself...
To eat your apple an spit out the seeds,
To water, feed and love a little apple tree?
Who has the money, the time and the desire
to grow an apple tree,
and let the poor thing suffer from polluted air or nuclear disease?
So mercifully kill that weed, it feels no pain,
as most enlightened people say.
They do not wait until the law says it's a tree,
for then, it's killing, no longer surgery.
When little trees cry silently in agony unseen,
God sees and hears and will remember, forever,
the gardeners and their choices,
of life or death...
