Forests Go

Processed certainty, screened infirmity.
Demand grows, forests go.
Timber price rises,
   trees grow.

Solid investment cycle belief,
   establishment claims,
days of rain, income guaranteed.

Banner headlines, full page endorsements.
Muddied, dark material stains.
Potent Muses stare out, men and women, fame.
    World renown and stature, underwriters,

Prix d'honneur, d'art, d'nature, d'guerre,
esprit d'corp,
legends no more.

Patterns, details, game show,
panel selection,
recognised, confirmed, denied.

Breathing deeply,
climb to the tower summit.

Remembering names to faces.
 Take in the view.
Return to the fray.
