On the Market

Some damned little part of me's concerned
With the fate of the damned little tree
Caged to keep it away from the deer
And fed by drip irrigation

That stopped dripping, I suspect for good,
A few years ago when the owner
Of this particular property
Stopped caring about his orchard

And began confining obsession
To finding renters and harassing
Prospective buyers into buying
Property no prospector would buy.
