Selectmen, spare that Spruce

Ode to a Brewster Spruce
(with apologies to Joyce Kilmer)

I think that I may never see,
A pavement lovely as a tree.

A tree whose sprucy peak is blest
With Christmas stars upon its crest.

A tree that looks "Cape Cod" all day,
And lifts its leafy arms to say;

"You'll pay a price to cut this tree,
This Herring Run belongs to me."

Parking lots are made by fools like thee,
Only Cape Cod could make this tree.
