Talking with the tree

The tree said, “Is Covid still happening?”

I said, “Unfortunately.”

The tree said, “Is there anything I can do?”

I said, “Not that I can think of.”

The tree said, “A while back there was a terrible blight. Many of the trees were stricken. I had it myself and recovered. But some other trees weren’t so lucky.”

I said, “I’m glad you’re okay.”

The tree said, “Me too you.”
