@Barbara - Made of Tree

Soon we'll all end up in something made of tree, made of tree...


Look, Look
I have a book
Of pages ninety-three
A caper
Stamped in paper
Made of tree, made of tree

Snip, snap
It's time to wrap
And tape it up with glee
With jolly
Men and holly
Made of tree, made of tree

It's not hard
To write the card
To father, love from me
With no stencil
But a pencil
Made of tree, made of tree

Then lock it
In this pocket
To maintain the mystery
It'll cope
This envelope
All made of tree, made of tree

I'll then place it
With a fellow gift or three
No wonder
It's all under
This great tree, this great tree

And ignore
This thought that gnaws
That one day we might just be
Caught bereft
With nothing left
That's made of tree, made of tree
