Hopes and Dreams

new rhyme scheme     =     abacadaba

He was always told to be happy as a twig,
but he wanted to branch out,
see how tall he could be, how big,
with dreams of becoming a Christmas centerpiece,
or maybe just a leg of a Marconi rig,
So he sunk his roots, deep in the earth,
looked for food, for water, down deep he’d dig,
for he lived in Australia, surrounded by drought,

but eventually became a Botany Bay Fig.
