Epiphany

Epiphany


Before he saw the trees
all that he saw was forest.
A barrier to progress it seemed,
in the manner of a nuisance.
Armed with writ of might means right
the woodsman's fate was sealed.
Defenestrate he yelled aloud
and put the lumbering jerks to work.
Inside the wood some trees agreed,
cried Infidel and Oaks must die.
But once exposed along the road
to trees unique from roots to leaves,
his eyes were opened and the voice
of Christ said Saul! You have a choice.
