sylvan soliloquy

In amongst the majestic arboreals
Citing personal verses aloud
Pleading for the wisdom
Praying for peace
Wanting life

this makes me think of camping trips with family in brownwood texas.

400 oak trees chopped down for $1 billion NYY stadium... 3 ballparks built in lieu of old stadium as reparation. Seems fair to me, how about you?

Reminds me of the rush song...

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw
