That is probably true, but he may honestly feel it in his bones.
Or maybe he saw/sees it with his own eyes right in front of him and was doing what many artists do... Singing/painting/writing about what he sees.
Like when you're watching a guy chop down a tree...you see him chopping with an axe, you hear the axe hitting the tree repeatedly, then you hear the
guy yelling out "timber!"...at some point there it becomes obvious, to some who recognise the signs, that a tree is going to fall.
From a young age, I've been hearing the axe hitting the tree, and its been obvious to me for a while that this "tree" is going to fall. Unless a
miracle happens. Sometimes something comes up and the logger has to leave the tree alone to go do something else, or he decides he doesn't want that
tree anymore, or he's threatened with a lawsuit so he stops chopping. Sometimes the tree starts to fall, but it just leans up against another tree
and never actually falls. Or sometimes it falls and lands on the person trying to chop it down, killing them. So then the forest might have a chance
to survive. At least, until another logger comes along AMD says "hey look at all these nice trees, let's chop em all down! Yeah!!!!"
But if we are vigilant we might learn our lesson from the first tree chopper, and we can learn to deal with any others who come along. Maybe we can
fall on him.again and kill him, or maybe we can use some other resources of the forest. Maybe we can send a bear or two to scare him off or tear him
apart limb from limb. Or perhaps a swarm of mosquitos, bees, tics, and after enough bites he will fall ill or go away...
I don't know. But the first tree chopper is here, chopping away at our tree, and unless something happens, he will chop all the way through and we
will fall. I don't know how far, and I don't know what will happen after. But we are going to fall unless a miracle happens. Maybe falling is the
fastest, most efficient way to bring about the change that is needed.
