“In the blink of an eye

Only I can fix it”

Ah yes, the master of the deal

Ready to negotiate with

Mother Nature

The giant Sequoia

With two thousand rings

One for each year of its life

Can’t respond in kind

To an imbecile

Let the master of the deal

Run naked

Down an unmarked path

To stair blankly at

Undiscovered hieroglyphs

To the uninformed

It seems so simple

So black and white

To do your deal with

Pele , Hephaestus or Vulcan

Oh, master of the deal

Your time as mine

Is slipping away

You will soon know

Mother Nature does not do deals
