"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."


Nobody cares
But still,
Nature is a prostitute
With only a gauzy sheet of azure
To cover its bronzed swellings.
Nobody notices
But still,
Nature is a prostitute
With a lengthy brown body;
And green dollar bills
Teeming from its skirt of moss.
Nobody understands
But still,
Nature is a prostitute 
With hundreds of bees 
sucking the nectar
From it's delicate flowers.
And nobody wonders 
But still,
Nature is a prostitute and 
Man it's eternal subject
With no hope of moving on
In a world consumed by this 
Prostitutes beauty.

This was different---I was drawn to your title:) Never thought of nature in this way.
