It's just poetry, it won't bite

Harris Tobias’ most recent poem here was Hints of Spring (May 2011).

By Harris Tobias

I have dealt the vines a mighty blow
I visited their stronghold and laid them waste
Some as fat around as a man’s arm
They must have been there for years
And thought they were safe
Others were thinner than a thread
Barely one season old
I gave them a taste of the old one two
I cut them all and left them wondering
What they did to incur my wrath
I did not feel the need to explain
Why bother? They cannot escape their nature
Nor can I
Theirs to twine
Mine to watch them die.
