Plants in agony

I am a flower who lived in peace
in a garden which looked very much like heaven
but the gardener planted some noxious weeds
the weeds bribed the foolish gardener

the weeds broke flowers' thorns as they grew strong
no weeding or mulch can stop their tenacity
the gardener is treating the flowers as weeds
the weeds bribed the foolish gardener

[Hata Bildir]
