Art and the philosophy of life

most people don’t realize that trees
aren’t always what they seem to be
most trees are friendly
and kind
but others
are just plain
so when Tod got too close
the tree simply grabbed him
and no matter how hard he tried
he could not escape
the police looked for him
his parents
and their friends
searched high and low
but he was never found
every time someone
walks past the tree
they quicken their pace
and think
to themselves
that tree
is definitely
more than it
seems to be
