Treasure Island

Manonton Dalan

(virginia, usa)

thanks to a tree

tree's light is off now
few boxes still under
tomorrow would be
clean up tree be gone
leaving just ornaments
for coming season

i wonder how many
trees give its life
for human festivities
why should you take
a beautiful tree indoor
to make you happy

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
