This picture provides us with a perfect metaphor for the meaningfulness of government activity. First, here is a look at the picture – just quietly contemplate it for while and let it work its magic on you:
Yes, these two gentlemen are actually watering a tree in the middle of a downpour…
You may have noticed that the two gentlemen with the watering cans have two living umbrella-holders at their disposal. Obviously, they must be VIPs of some sort.
The tree getting victimized in the picture is actually a young fir, and one must fear that it will drown. Small firs do of course need water if they want to become big firs, but there can be too much of a good thing, and this may well be such a case.
And the chances are pretty high that these Elites had to read instructions on “How to Water a Tree” before performing their duty and the instructions did not mention the weather.
It is probably not necessary to water plants while it is raining, as rain is reportedly quite wet all by itself (step out from underneath the umbrella next time, and you will see what we mean).
Still, the VIPs have to be commended for not shirking their planting duties in the face of inclement weather, and we want to thank them for providing us with this moving image. And of course, we wish the fir all the best.
