Bush Lay - Poem by Donald Rowley

The protea
Is not the most
Satisfactory bush
To make out under.

The silver leaf tree
Has more style
Though it's
A botanical rarity.

Pine trees en masse
Drop enough needles
To make the ground

But the edible fig
Stands alone
For its leaves
May be donned
In a crisis.
