Revenge of the Leaves

Revenge of the Leaves 

They all came together in one place 
Each with each and all with all 
They said their piece 
From early Spring to almost Fall

They listened intent to understand 
What was to become of the rest of Man 
After assimilation's of the great debate 
A conclusion was decided on their fate

After man had raked, pillaged & burned their kin 
Destroying memories of those within 
The great leaves of trees would finally take revenge

'Let US no longer give air for them to breathe 
No longer the beauty of our Majesty 
Never again provide shade from the Sun 
Let them burn, as our Fathers had been done

From that day forward till the end 
Trees and leaves held their breath 
Until all the ‘Rakers had died 
The most boring of deaths 

... and for any that may come long after 
That sound you hear of breeze in the trees 
Is the leaves in their laughter.
