The Ugly Tree


they laughed
called her ugly

she was hunched
but tall

full of knots
brittle yet tough

an easy target
for bullies

then came the fire
it destroyed her

they could find no another
as beloved
to taunt

it left them vulnerable
and consumed
with rage

annoyed
she no longer existed
for their twisted pleasure
