Stump

oak

in response to Stump

From an idea of Spike Milligan…hope he’s laughing up there

They chopped down a giant tree
And left its heart in the ground
The tree it didn’t complain
But for the thump there was no sound

They used its wood to make a chair
For an elevated man declared
Who was indeed a man of state
He thought the idea was great

So leaving behind the trees own stump
On a grand chair he rests his rump
But there is a problem with this seat he bought
It makes him look tremendously short

So question posed by poet is this
The kudos of grandeur? There’s something amiss
Why chop a king of the forest so tall
If it makes the great man look so small ?
