Eulogy for Trees

There are gravestones, each different From the other; the surf board wood, The furniture wood, the cinnamon bark The vanilla extract, the king coconut fruits, And many more. Even the old school botanists Are to blame for separating with little meaning, Like the colonials did in southern Africa.
