the reincarnation of some sons of Bitches

Almost all of us agree,

to plant a tree

is one of the things

a person should do

as part of a fulfilled life.

I wonder what nature intended

with the right hand

left hand aspect

of our evolution?

The spot we chose

turned out to be

a pauper's grave.

Compensating,

we tilted the tree

leeward into the wind.
