Dead Trees - Poem by Ronald Chapman

What happened to the promise the internet would bring?


In these days of the internet and cellphone information.
It seems we never rest from our fast communications,
To look at the beautiful site of trees.


Had these devices never seen the light of day?
Where would we be today?
Much has been said that the internet and computers has saved
Much a life of a tree.


Can this intent really be true?


It seems to me. More paper is being used.
Every place I look. I see dead trees!
Paper in garbage cans, paper shredders, dumpsters, cash register receipts, landfills.


Lovers of trees should take some time away from the fast communications,
to view these majestic trees.


Before these trees, give their lives for printer paper tossed in the garbage.


In these days of the internet and cellphone information.
There are still too many dead trees.


What happened to the promise the internet would bring?
