Four Flowers And A Jerk: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


The wilted flowers found strength in their stem.
She had brought back hope to all of them
by waving her aura like a magic wand
and promising these perennials with a life beyond!


Stanley loved her until the day she died
but it was a gift of flowers in which he never complied
and without this beautiful gesture she felt denied
unaware he lay roses by her side.


Those nasty flowers talk back to me.
They think I am a silly bee
but they don't know I suffer unequivocally
from the side effects of LSD!


In a field of daisies the young men lay
but its natural beauty can only betray
what their eyes shall no longer see
on this bloody day in history!


You've made this look like easy work
and all the while you manage to smirk
although a moral code is what you shirk.
The thin line between attitude and being a jerk!
