Eat a Flower

IF YOU WERE TO LICK A LILY




YOU WOULD PLAINLY SEE
THAT IT BLOOMS INSIDE,





YOUR MOUTH IS WIDE,

AND YOUR TONGUE’S STUNG BY A BEE!

IF YOU’D LIKE TO SNIFF A LILAC








THEN YOU’D REALLY KNOW




THAT IT’S IN THE AIR,





YOUR NOSTRILS FLARE,

AND YOUR SMILE IS FORCED TO GROW!


IF YOU’D KINDLY KISS A ROSEBUSH





YOU WOULD SURELY FIND

THAT YOUR LIPS ARE RED,


YOUR MOUTH IS DEAD,

AND YOUR FACE SMELLS TRULY DIVINE!


BUT WHO AM I
TO TELL YOU WHY
YOU SHOULD EAT A FLOWER?

This surely brought a smile to my face. This is a great, witty, well-thought out poem. This is really great. Good job!
