The Rainforest - Poem by ADEWUMI JOSHUA

Many miles deep in the forest
Where all is green,
His voice is keen:
The woodpecker
Keeps calling
Knock! Knock! Knock!
The echo keep coming.

Somewhere, the grasscutter could hear,
And he has no fear.
His fore- fathers had heard,
And they had not feared.
Knock! Knock! Knock!
And it shall be open unto thee
The woodworm heard,
And verily, it wrigglely flee.

We came and heard.
Verily, we were surprised!
We stood solidly in full silence
with all our attention
turned to the intellingence
in such wonderful creation!
But since he was not Beethoven,
Switfly, that interest died like vain!

Suddenly, the chainsaw roared
And again with all attention, we razed.
We plugged our ears,
ripped off our concerns from this masscre,
this morn brought to the Maia years.
Many mile deep in the forest
The woodpecker raced
The grasscutter raced
The forest felled,
And empty silence reigned.
