Plant Genitals

Day eight of NaPoWriMo. The prompt for today was to write about flowers. As you can see below the poem is inspired by an SMBC web comic. I was a little hesitant to use the words ‘genital mutilation’ for humorous purpose as it is an issue of grave concern in the human world.

Flowers are no doubt a thing of beauty,
Sadly most of them are killed in their prime,
Not allowed to carry on their duty,
Good looks and fragrance being their only crime.

Trees are cut down by the thousands each day,
turned to buildings, fences and furniture,
burned for  fuel, warmth or lighting the way.
countless ways are employed for this torture.

Flowers are merely used for the pleasure,
Hung around and thrown everywhere for fun,
The damage done is quite beyond measure,
genital mutilation can’t please anyone.
