Still As A Tree
 

I named content as crickets

I alerted annoyed trees

That sway in the steady breeze

Leaves crackle minute by minute

The man in the background muffles a sneeze

As he disappears out comes a bee

He and his wife are having a dispute

I approach and one stings my knee

I yell and jump yelling please

Then I fall still as the tree
