As I drew near the magic tree
I felt a sudden lethargy.
I was devoid of energy
The magic tree had captured me.
To satisfy its appetite.
With promises of sheer delight
it undermined my will to fight.
I must resist with all my might.
I will succeed in breaking free
and then destroy the magic tree.
Then I discover suddenly
I am inside the magic tree.
This is no dream or fantasy.
Alas it’s grim reality.
My struggles were to no avail
The tree must win I had to fail.
If you should find a magic tree
avoid it very carefully.
Few people caught by this strange tree
ever succeed in breaking free.
But one did lived to tell his story
How he escaped eventually.
But no one believed that there could be.
A sentient man eating tree.
