Trees

Let the trees be consulted before you take any action.

Every time you breathe in thank a tree.

Let tree roots crack parking lots.

Let loggers be druids who know how to sacrifice trees at auspicious times.

Let carpenters be master artisans.

Let lumber be treasured like gold.

Let chainsaws be played like saxophones.

Let soldiers on manoeuvres plant trees.

Give police and criminals a shovel and a thousand seedlings.

Let businessmen carry pockets full of acorns.

Let newlyweds honeymoon in the woods.

Walk, don’t drive.

Stop reading newspapers.

Squat under a tree and tell stories.
