A Dirty Tree

The Birch in my backyard is a very dirty tree
It drops several waves of stuff every spring
Snakey things
I don’t really know what they all are
But they drop in and on everything
And in the fall there are the leaves
And for all the trouble I am caused
I don’t blame the wind
Or Aphids
Or el nino
I blame the tree
Which is why
I should do something when my daughter pushes my son into the wall
Or one of them throws food
Or jumps on the couch
I don’t want to be
A dirty tree
