the trees held betrayal
but they didn’t know
that their production
would cause a choice
that ended in destruction.

but a nation built homes
and fires and temples
from those trees
in order to serve the one
that planted them.

but little did they know
that the trees would eventually
bear the one who created them;
create a crown that degraded him.

and yet
he landed on a throne
encompassed in glory
with more than jewels as treasure

for his treasure
was founded on serving the nation
who built him
from those trees he planted
all that time ago
