Mutual Aid

The back yards I like the best
Look like a good camp site
My dog is lying in the shade
Of a tree I planted years ago
She sighs, she listens
To the birds in the branches
Lowers her head onto the cool

Grass and sleeps dreamily
The tree was a sapling given
Away by a big forest corporation
On Arbour Day in the days
When forest corporations could
Afford to give anything away
My dog sure likes that free tree

Those are good lines, but my wife couldn't understand them. Difference I think between growing up in the country, or at least country all around, and in the city.
