This is an experiment of mine, in trying to write a scenario with two possible outcomes, and so I've put them side by side. And it has also been a useful lesson in HTML.
Last Tree Standing
Mumbai, 16 July 2006
It was the last tree standing
On the prairie’s boundless ground
Harassed by the winds and rain alike
It stood alone, calm, strong
Gently holding on to its last leaves.
“More wood, more fire,
"No wood, no fire, no orgies.
