Untitled #I don’t know

Some people are flowers
Beauty filled and joyful —
Roses, lilies, irises
columbines, orchids, and daisies

Some people are trees
Sturdy, strong, flexible —
Oaks, pines, colorful maples
White birch, ornamental fruit, fragrant flowers

Some people are plants
Curious, odd and strangely attractive
cactus, wondering Jews, spider
ivy, philodendron, or even small neat Bonsai trees

Unfortunately many are invasive
There to choke you with their
clinging nature, tricking you into
believing there is something more

Weeds, carnivorous, and parasitic

They emulate beauty, grace, joy,
strength, and curiosity
with deadly results

If only they were mere
plants…
