Those Two by Ginsberg

This poem is eco-critical in nature and brings into spotlight the hazardous
effects of modern technology on the natural order. The first tree
represents the voice of nature against the alarming growth of machine at
the cost of nature. The second tree, in an ironic mood, asks the first tree
to accept the reality as it is.

cute, seems atypical of Ginsberg. Could have been written by anyone???
Which was Ginsberg, the long-winded, recounting over and over the aspects
of the events, or was he the cutesy, terse, witty, Ginsberg???

I dont quite understand what the poet is pointing at! But certainly I do
hear my co-workers indulge in such conversations! I dont understand them
