Hey you – yeah, you.
Put down that brush loaded up…
with golden ochre acrylic paint.
Relax – fill your coffee cup.
I have a tree story to tell.
One that will make you fear…
Those lovely Bradford Pear blossoms,
That I’m about to smear.
Yes, they may be pretty.
A sterile ornamental tree.
Unfortunately, with just themselves…
and now most people will agree.
To never plant these trees.
If it’s not enough – you will never see a single pear.
The havoc that they’ll spread…
Will be more than we can bear.

Poem for The Sunday Muse and for Poetry Pantry.
Happy Sunday. 😊Photo: Source
