Poet's Tree

Growing, Slim and Slundering, is my Poet's Tree

Anyone can learn from it, as far as the eye can see

To the slums of the city life

To the backcountry and the farmer's wife

It'll teach you how to perservere, how to stand tall

It'll teach you how to be full of patience, or maybe not at all.

You see, it's all about how you take the message and apply it to your way

Will it affect your self-identity? Will you realize that you're gay?

This poet's tree don't have no roots

The roots are all of you

All of youins who read this poem, those are who it toots (for).
