The tree so green and full of life
with strong roots that hold tight
but no one sees the fungus that begins to grow
because on the outside it doesnt show
as time goes by
the leaves start to die
slowly the rot begins to show on the outside
the fungus the tree held so deep inside
has no place left to hide
the bark starts to turn black
the limbs begin to bend and crack
no one would water it
so down the middle it split
they assumed it would always be there
so they went on without a care
it was such a sad sight
to see a tree that was once so full of life
wither and die before our eyes
