should I become your treasure?

Should I Become Your Treasure?

Magnificent unrooter,

take me from my place.

In the morning without a breeze,

lift me above the forest

and drop me in the sea.

Or at dusk without a pickup truck,

drag me through the beaten path

as you have the others chosen for you.

Should I become your treasure?

You keep a distant grasp

and I am without presence in my bark.

You ask my leadership

and I become your follower.

You call on me never

and I stand always at attention.
