Fantabulous Forest Fungi

‘O mighty mushrooms,
Forest colonisers,
Temperature regulators,
Marvellous Ones!

Airborne spore tons
Cloud seeders,
Righteous rain-makers
Water table lifters,
Rainforest rejoicers!

All hail Oyster ‘shrooms,
Petroleum cleaner-uppers,
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon
Cancer breaker-downers,
Pollution expungers,
Toadstool treasurables!

Microscopic mycorrhizas
Woodwide webbers,
Tree telecomers,
Jacob’s joiners,
Animal agronomers,
Colossal carbon capturers,
Mother’s masterpiecers!
