    venus flytraps wake
    springtime sun lights the morning
    somewhere a fly cries

    Final Limerick III

    Annoying pests are in a trance.
    Around death traps they always dance.
    It's time for their resting,
    and time for digesting.
    Who doesn't love bug-eating plants?

    'Cloud Forest Mistress'

    Veiled Nepenthes
    warmed by Sol's caress, wakes from
    mist enshrouded dreams

    How long do we have to submit? And can we submit multiple poems?

    Final Limerick IV: Pitcher Perfect

    If we die, read our memoirs.
    What doesn't kill us will leave scars.
    We're stuck in pitchers;
    We're belly-itchers.
    It's all thanks to Nep's and Sarr's.

    The neps have turned black.
    Fertilizer, herbicide...
    they're the same thing, right?

    My beautiful plants,
    how tall and vibrant you have grown
    these last two minutes.

    towards the light is "out."
    "out" is where the freedom lies.
    So I'll fly towards the -

    Come, my worker ants,
    Nectar waits in great supply
    right over this cliff.

    And, just for fun, a total nonsense poem. What rhymes with "aristolochioides?"

    There once was a nep called aristolochioides,
    whose pitchers were light as the fairest sock of soybeans.
    A fly came to play,
    but then flew away.
    Seethed the plant, "well, I don't really care worth a box of toy fleas.

    I'll leave "infundibuliformis," "mapuluensis," and "mentalingajanensis," as challenges for the next person
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.

    There once was an infundibuliformis,
    who lived up high on a cornice,
    she wished to grow a friend, a mapuluensis.
    So she looked up the facts in an appendice,
    but wound up with a mentalingajanensis,
    who said with a smile, "I'll be your best frien', sis!"

    Final Limerick V: The Aphid Empire Strikes Back

    Of all my idiosyncratic hatreds.
    Worst of all, the prolific aphids.
    I don't want you as a tenant,
    I don't care if you're born pregnant.
    I tell my plants, "Sorry it's not safe, kids."


    Final Limerick VI: The Return of the Scale

    Did I mention I don't like scale?
    What is my quest? I seek the Grail!
    Though not so hard to kill,
    It give me such a thrill.
    The war I wage is fought full-scale.
