Revenge Of The, 'leaves Of Autumn'. - Poem by Toby Twigg

The Leaves all came together in one place
Each with each and all with all
They said their piece
From early Spring to almost Fall

They listened intent to understand
What was to become of the rest of Man
After assimilation of the great debate
A conclusion was decided on their fate

After man had 'Raked, pillaged & burned their kin
Destroying memories of those within
The great leaves of trees would finally take revenge

'Let us no longer give clean air for them to breathe
No longer give them the beauty of our Majesty
Never again provide shade for them from the Sun
Let them burn as our Fathers, had been done

From that day forward until the end
The trees and leaves held their breath
Until all the ‘Rakers had died
The most boring of deaths

... and for any that may come long after,
That sound you hear
Of breeze in the trees
It is only the leaves in their laughter.
