80

This is a poem about flowers and

stuff

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.
