To My Left, A Fencepost

Well, I wrote this in a memo on my phone in the car today, so it's just a short poem.

To my left, a fencepost
And to my right, a tree.
A disconcerting slaughter:
"A" massacred for "B."

 So then resurgent musings
Return to be reused-
To think of something precious
Being callously abused.

 Perhaps it's overthinking.
Perhaps it's only me.
But I can't seem to stop thinking
Of the fate of that symbolic tree.

The End
