Initial Association Comment:

Does everything require an answer? The Trees by Rush describes the problem plaguing civil order since the beginning of time. I'm sure if Maples and Oaks were able to reason such an argument would be discussed. To often the answer to such arguments come from the extreme or as Rush describes, "hatchet, axe, and saw".

What is the answer? How does this lyric associate with the Dream essay?  That's for the audience to decide.

There is unrest in the forest There is trouble with the trees For the maples want more sunlight And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples (And they're quite convinced they're right) They say the oaks are just too lofty And they grab up all the light But the oaks can't help their feelings If they like the way they're made And they wonder why the maples Can't be happy in their shade.

There is trouble in the forest And the creatures all have fled As the maples scream 'Oppression!' And the oaks just shake their heads.

So the maples formed a union And demanded equal rights 'The oaks are just too greedy We will make them give us light' Now there's no more oak oppression For they passed a noble law And the trees are all kept equal By hatchet, axe and saw.
