Roots pushed firmly in by your boot,
painful history sunk in black earth,
rescued from regret,
planted in fertile ground,
nourished and nurtured,
with love as a surround,
everything thanks to your commute,
apologies and despair,
water, love and care,
never put to bed,
the path once made,
a debt is never paid,
only the soul each day weighed,
the tree gives fruit,
painful roots,


Why loot when there’s fruit,

Given all nature’s fruit,
they chose to loot,
from the Kingdom,

furry, feathery and cute,
