The final acorn

I am the closing chapter in our genealogy, The last remaining acorn from a giant mother tree An unproductive member of a fertile family, And only male descendant in its total history. But sad, to say nobody ever chose to marry me And so the name will disappear without posterity. 04/17/20 The Last Acorn Poetry Contest Sponsor John Lawless
