tribute to The Giving Tree

She breathes out, we breathe in.  We breathe out, she breathes in.

She breathes out our air, we breathe in her waste.  We breathe out her air, she breathes in our waste.   In natural equilibrium.

But how generous we have been lately!  Tipping the scale ever so much.  Giving her so much more than she asks for.  More than she needs –  to breathe.

And so she ails from our suffocating generosity.
