of the Corpse Flower
a story Iíve got to tell,
a ten foot flower that really smells.
called a corpse but itís not dead.
itís inside pedals are red.
will make your eyes water.
and for creeps thatís just the starter.
also dead for years.
it opens wide creating tears.
will need a stepladder to get to the top.
your head inside long enough for your nose to pop.
your allergies usually fill your skull with dread,
is one day you will not want a clear head.
the Goth kids will be standing in line.
a name like The Corpse Flower they looked at the sign.
kids like to follow macabre fame.
kids will be thinking itís a new rock band with that name.
feet of horror like Frankenstein;
hope nobody is disappointed and starts to whine.
donít think green thumbs will be fooled.
Goth kids they usually are not tools.
Seuss could have thought of this.
Mother Natureís imagination made this not his.
thumbs come from across the Sound.
Washington is where the body can be found.
of Washington itís in the greenhouse.
comes in like a lion then sleeps like a mouse.
botany team works until ten at night.
you donít have to wait in line to see the freight.
Corpse Flower blooms once every few years.
come and see it now before the bloom disappears.
yellow and red flower will lumber for years at a time.
it soon because Iím out of rhyme.
