Raj Arumugam


trees, and plants and such


trees, trees and plants
we see them with trunks round
Love them, laugh with them
cos you may not see them
all years, always a -round

Trees, trees
they have no fingers
Oh, but they’ve got many rings;
and they still get on the internet
by logging in

Tulips grow on your face
and if you plant kisses
you get another two lips;
the cucumber goes mad
cos it’s in a pickle;
the mushroom is always invited to parties
cos he’s a fungi

and the dog loves the tree
cos they both have bark;
while the frog’s favorite flower
is the croak-us;
the elephant, on the other hand,
I mean on the other trunk,
loves squash;
and while the fruit
comes from a fruit tree
the chicken comes
from a poul-tree

trees, trees and plants
we see them with trunks round
Love them, laugh with them
cos you may not see them
all years, always a-round

the nut sneezes: 'Cashew! '
And the lemon is sick
and the kind neighbors
give it lemon-aid;
the tomato turns red
cos it sees the salad dressing;
and baby corn says to mama corn:
'Where’s pop? '

and you humans
if you reach out with your hands
you can fit a palm tree in;
and knock! knock!
who’s there?
'Leaf – yeah, just leaf me alone;
enough of your silly jokes'

Trees, trees and plants
we see them with trunks round
Love them, laugh with them
Cos you may not see them
All years, always a -round
