Why is it so?

Why is it so?

The trees cry out to their sisters cut limb from limb beside them
wild birds and lizards nest in the thousand bones
“..at least something has come of our sisters”

The birds and lizards cry out as the limbs are lit
the bonfire burns- warming the happy faces of human children
“..at least something has come of our homes”

The children cry out as the fire dies to ash
feeding the hungry dirt below, warming the pretty worms
“..at least something has come of our fire”

Why is it so?
-life and death follow each other?
Asks the trees, perhaps they know.
