Lumberjack In A Forest

Poem by Shmuel Shoshani

Lumber Jack with axe and saw, entered the forest.
Said a tree to another: Lumberjack came upon us.
Awe to us ! cried the neighbor; it must be one of us
that betrayed us.
How come ? asked the other tree.
Look at the handles of the axe and saw,
from wood of a tree, they are made to handle.
without it, iron alone is useless.
Therefore, it is said; dangerous traitors are within
If not for Delilah,
Sampson captive wouldn't have been
When a forest is caught in fire.
the dry and the wet burn together.
