Tree of Life

A tree once spoke to me, I swear!
When you weren't there, when you weren't there,
It said, "Hello little lonely boy,
You're quite attached to that little toy
Called reality, reality, reality.
Well, have you tried just letting go?"
So I replied: What do you know?!
I love my toys, my toys love me.
Don't make me angry Mr. Tree!
That's when a crow came swooping down,
Squawked at me and pecked my crown.
"That's what you get!" said Mr. Tree,
"For playing with reality."
