Too many branches
Are weighing it down
Left, right, up
Around and down
Other trees are branchless
And tall they grow
These branches are heavy
Heavier in vow
Bees, birds, flies
The tree doth sigh

Birds sit to chirp
Birds fly to play
Birds build their nest in
Their droppings getting a mapping
As some choral display

Snakes snake to hide
Snakes snake to prey
Snakes snake in exercise
To scare birds away
Even rodents try to join
Shuttling in, out and in

Many rush to be shaded
Many climb for fruits
Many cut its bark
Leaving sores to play
This one tree is in a hustle
And will fall by winds one day
If none sees its hustle
Its fall will cause dismay
