    1:
    Not to be confused with boring trefoil
    these plants will patiently toil
    killing various arthropods,
    and rooting in acidic bogs,
    as long as there is nitrogen depleted soil.


    2:
    I ain't got beef with all this photosynthesis,
    But I don't wanna be wearin' a prosthesis.
    I'll admit a plant that bites
    Is really quite a sight,
    But next thing ya know they'll have psychokinesis


    3:
    Take a look inside the Little Shop of Horrors,
    But be careful...be like Dora the Explorer,
    Cause those plants with big teeth
    They'll creep up from beneath
    And with their tentacles, grab ahold of your shoulders.

    'Said the Sundew to the Spider'

    Our traps, to us, are suited
    You're mobile, while I'm rooted
    We eat the same food
    And not to seem rude...
    But I hate being looted!



    'Replied the Spider to the Sundew'

    I steal; despite how you feel,
    It works out, it's a fair deal
    Because of the glue
    You make in your dew
    I might end up as your meal

    There are so many wonderful people to thank. First, my college lit prof who introduced me to this form of Japanese poetry through the writings of Matsuo Bashō, and who nursed my interest. Of course, everyone on TF for your endless support and patience w/ me and all the other noobs swimming upstream as we learn about these amazing plants. Also a shout out to all the insects that have unwillingly given up their time on our fair planet so that we humans may be entertained. Godspeed and RIP. To those I've failed to recognize, you know who you are..... Lastly, and before I'm kicked offstage, cheers to cp-connection for this fun thread. Thank you!
