Brilliant song...makes me think of all the whiney liberals that will sadly force us in to socialism keeping us all equal by hatchet, axe and saw!

This is either a very strange metaphor for civil rights, a dumb song that that takes itself way too seriously, or comedic genius, and I just can't figure out which.

I like equality but it should be people receiving the same aid and the same hindrances not chopping the oaks more than the maples until their the same

What's interesting about this song is how it shows Peart's difference of opinion from Ayn Rand. While the tragic outcome is overdone socialism, the blame can easily be put on the oaks for ignoring the plight of the maples, rather than suggesting the maples were wrong for wanting more sunlight.

My wife's favorite Rush song...she likes the bunnies and the squirrels that run through the forest when Alex does that little fretwork ditty leading into the final verse.

"Great Lyrics" or at least "Political Satire Lyrics" should be under the attributes to this song.
