Yeah! I’m Cranky!

Don’t look at me
Just don’t look at me
I’m utterly hideous
Go away Go away now!

This is not how I
Want you to see me.

All gnarled and grey
Haven’t had adequate
Rest in weeks with
All the traffic
And noise.

You know I didn’t start
Out this way.

Once I was young and
Lean and my bark was
Smooth and full of life.

There weren’t nearly
As many lines carved
Through me and I was
Quite a nice specimen.


All I have now are
Memories deeply etched
In the core of my
Strong trunk.
Come on walk around
To my better side
And I won’t be so cranky!
