Timber

Timber

Can you lay a big tree down, Dave?
 
Yes, an’ it be as gently 
 
felled as any babe
 
ever laid to cradle.
 
Can you make it 
 
fall exactly so, Dave?
 
Aye. Set your compass to it, Mate.

It’ll fall 
 
as 
     straight 
                  as 
                                any 
    country 
                   
road
   there
                                be
                            in 
                      Washin
g 
  ton.

Then have a go at it, Dave, 
 
but let me caution 
 
you, trees are as unruly 
 
as any Woman on Earth.
 
Yeah. I’ll be minding that.
