Though not the kind we like to eat.
Instead, it’s a beautiful flower,
One that will never, skip a beat.
We pluck these spiny beauties,
From the soil, to feed a pang.
Perhaps, look for something else,
Which will satisfy, with a tang.
Just imagine, if we did allow,
This vegetable, to truly blossom;
Oh, how colorful the land would be,
On Earth, yes, simply awesome!
