This is a poem about flowers and
flowers, flowers, flowers
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH
don’t mention roses they are such a cliche
and no one has even seen a real rose
the thing you think is a rose isn’t a rose it’s something else
entirely alien and dirty
my favorite flower? You know those flowers from
Mario, that come out of the tubes and have
big fangy mouths and try to eat Mario?
they’re called Piranha Plants
Yeah, that’s my favorite.
