The Green Neem

Healer. Village Pharmacy. Devine

beneath merciless heat

quickly tall and stretched and shading

with oxygen to spare

it frames the deserts of Africa

waiting for nomads to save

an answer to every question 

never asked

it heals a thousand broken

things it brings

peace

it wards evil it 

watches and waits

patiently for 200

years

protecting this

world with an 

ancient wisdom

this neem
