If Trees Had a Voice

If trees had a voice
And if they could ever make a choice
if they could scream and bellow
had eyes to express sorrows

Maybe their painful screech
would do the much needed outreach
the outcries might thwart human’s belligerent tries
might hold them responsible against their lies

Plant more flora
if you put down one, plant two more
be responsible
be human
