Forget-me-nots just watch themselves
In ponds that mirror sheer conceit.
In pots that sit on kitchen shelves
Petunias bask in self-defeat.

The rose is but a rhapsody,
The daisy a simple song,
The pansy a velvet pixie
That in mischief does no wrong.

But laughter is the flower of life –
The simple cure for pain and strife.

Omnivorous lover of life with interests from poetry/literature and science to geopolitics, health and art. IFB.
