In the ocean,

On a tiny piece of land

In the middle of nowhere

Just a little bit of sand

 

A mighty tree clung

To the earth so rough

And the natives sung

That its bark is so tough

 

For it stretched and swayed

In the wind and rain

Never buckled or cracked

Only holding its pain

 

Till one day, it seemed,

Had an end to all that.

Though its pride beamed

Fate was where it sat.

 

For the winds had changed

And the earth had shook

It was bound to happen

So why don’t they look

 

But it was real

So many leaves fell

Bark began to peel

And it lost all it could sell

 

That wasn’t the end

For the water rose

Onto the island

For the tree it chose

 

Though its roots held fast

Almost every leaf had fallen

Its strength is of the past

Help is the call’in
