Poet’s Nook: “Every Seed’s a Bomb” by Elliot Sperber

Image result for tree seeds

Each seed is a bomb
Go and plant one.

Every seed’s a bomb,
And each tree’s an explosion.

Apple, maple, sweetgum, plum…
Each tree’s an explosion

Let’s go carpet bomb the continents
The cities, river valleys,

Every mountain range, and coastal plain,
before it’s too late —

Carpet bomb ‘em all,
Back to the Stone Age

Back when the forests were thick

The air wasn’t rich with carcinogens yet

Why waste your life
In this mess
paying debts
That don’t even exist?

Blow it all up

Be free,
Plant seeds,
Grow trees
