Painting and Verse by Dr. Abe V. Rotor
Who speaks better – a tree or a ruin -
Of your state that has gone wrong?
Yes, water flows and whispers beneath you
And your posts and planks are strong.
Life’s is like this, and we may not know,
Until our world ends before its time;
And a single tree stands to confirm
Our uselessness in our prime.
