Bad Investment

I hear logging trucks
loading logs next door.
Quite a stack of cedar
they’ll get a good price for.

But money will never compensate
for the oxygen, soil stability,
shade, beauty, habitat
those trees provided.

Wrong thinking there
to exchange all of that
for paper printed
to look like something
more valuable.

When money no longer holds any value,
those trees will be missed terribly.
Another bad investment.
