The Teddy Bear Cactus - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Teddy bear cactus, whats in a name?
He that gave it to you, must have been insane.
Nothing is cuddly or cute that i see,
you are ferocious, armed to the teeth.

Two inch golden spears,
on green colored flesh,
you'll soon be in tears,
he'll turn you to hash.

Stay clear of old Teddy,
he'll stick you for sure.
You must always be ready,
for there is no cure.

Give Teddy a wide berth,
you must stay far away,
this is no cause for mirth,
If you meet him you'll pay.

    A very well expressed piece...
