Killing Trees
I was talking on the phone long distance to my very best friend.....she asked what I was doing.  Well, at the time I was trying to write a song and told her I was getting nowhere.   So I asked her to say anything.....just say words that came into her head.....we had been previously talking about a friend of mine who had bought a million plants at the end of a garden centre season, on sale, and ended up letting them all die.  So she said to me "killing Trees".

 Here it is.

Satin pillow for your head
We lie inside you when we're dead
Jesus was a carpenter
He made his mother furniture

My grandfather's captain's chair
Is solid maple and I swear
I can see him sitting there
You don't believe me, I don't care


    Rain forest makin air
    Decks and fences everywhere
    Apples pears and maple keys
    We spends our lives.........killing trees

My guitar is cherry wood
And I'd plant it if I could
Bearing fruit on every branch
I could listen, I could dance


    Rain forest makin air
    Deck and fences everywhere
    Apples pears and maple keys
    We spend our lives killing trees

Cozy homes for birds and bees
'Til people bring you to your knees
And complain while raking leaves
Can't see the forest for the trees


Thanks to suzy my best friend in the universe for the inspiration.

You're a very good word smith to, this is very witty, a bit like your guitar work quick and clever.
I like most of it but I really like this bit :
Jesus was a carpenter
He made his mother furniture
A wonderful rhyme .... and probably very true. lol
Are you thinking of putting it to music?
