A Banana Tree

Rating: 3.4


A banana tree is
Troubled by a mad elephant.
This is the poem -
Please understand
And control yourself.

Give all protection
To the banana tree.
Control the elephant
If you can, and read my poem.

Take it into consideration,
The time and the situation.
Control yourself and
Expand not anything
Without knowing.

Self-control for sure, but I like Dylan Thomas's verse: Don't go gentle into that good night... but of course, this is another story**

I like the title “A Banana Tree” but the poem seems like you are talking to someone specifically and does not read much like a poem (perhaps I’m expanding without knowing) . The title is original.

The banana tree is all knowing, observes and metes out wisdom. A great poem, succinct and awash with wisdom.
