Beware of Mineiros bearing gifts!
Aggression Trees & Fruit:
The red soil tinged with iron
Nurtures passion, envy and spite
Intense and always devastating
To foes; nurturing to friends.
The yellow fruit invites folly,
But creeps to those unaware
By the vengeance of true
And flexible, invisibility!
Be warned stranger by whiffs of
Smell so strong as to advise care,
Distance, attention and caution.
Signs I failed to heed, alas…
As of the land I should have known
When to beware and to retreat but
Didn’t, and hurt I was and had to
Escape from my own ground.
