The Missing Forest

Where is that dense forest

inhabited by palm, birch and maple trees?

Co-existing with their delicate leaves, fragrant flowers,

surrounded by tiny plants and thick vegetation

 

They were all cut down

and those who resisted

were burnt down

 

In their place now exists

modern buildings and uncaring hearts

throbbing only for printed papers

known as money

 

Those who survived the fire

still exist in the form of houses, furniture,

beauty products and lifesaving medicines
