Mortality in shallow roots
Must be extremely high.
Those are the foot soldiers.
I had photos taken
With Generals Grant and Sherman
And the carcass of the fallen Colonel
(Name not tabulated but tannin protected).
Grant can accommodate three million ping-pong balls
Sherman is the largest living thing,
But the hollowed Colonel served as a stable
For Cavalry horses and native Indians
And such other inferior beings,
As can do without heating.
The snow was only knee deep
In the Sequoia Redwoods.
Toilets were clean.
