judge not by what is on the exterior
| The incredible shrunken Bonsai,|
less restricted then the towering trees;
able to grace the finest tables,
as well as nature's own backyard.
The Mighty Oak,
limited to wide open spaces,
needing room to stretch spindly legs;
instead of drinking from a glass,
the patriarch of Subdivisions,
must sip through a storm!
The Bonsai, no one will ever climb,
or swing from its branches;
no fear of being chopped down,
or even leaned upon.
There's a lot to be said
about being small.
