Withering Heights

Wise ol' oak tree
Your concentric wrinkles have revealed your years.
You've stood there for so long battling your fears!
The roots have always been strong and steady,
Was it the stand-alone spirit that made you outlive your peers?

Wise ol' oak tree
Yours is a sad and meaningless strife.
For some inane rolls of toilet paper, they spliced up your life!
Botox and silicone were never on your wish list,
Then why is it that you were forced to go under the knife?
