    poetry contest

    Prize to be announced. Carnivorous plant themed haiku or limerick. No swears or naughtiness. I will get you started:

    Haiku (non rhyming 5-7-5)

    Jack Frost slapped my plants
    I will punch his kidneys
    Until its springtime

    Limerick (a-a-b-b-a, 7-7-5-5-7)

    There once was a fly named Pete
    who was looking for something to eat
    he smelled some nice crap
    a pitcher plant trap
    oh noes, a plant that eats meat!

    They said it couldn't be done
    Growin' pitcher plants without the sun
    My plants grew big and strong
    Still they tell me I'm wrong

    There once was a Byblis named Lou
    Everyone envied his dew
    Then one day
    To the whole bog's dismay
    Lou changed his name to Sue

    "The Drosera"

    Cursed worse than the Hope,
    Great gems glitter in the dew.
    Here, souls rot away.

    "Prize to be announced"

    Please won't you tell me the prize...
    before your untimely demise;
    Not any plant will do,
    'cept sarr's and large 'dews,
    or plants that'll chow down on flies.

    'Wet Peristome'

    Two ants once wagered a bet
    'Round they'd race, this track slicked wet
    They revved to VAROOM!
    But plunged to their doom
    Damned to swim laps of regret

    "Carnivorous plant rap"

    i am into Carnivorous plants
    so natrally this is one of my favorite chants
    i like pitchers so you see
    so my favorite of all is the napenthe
    it has a special trap
    and it smells like sap
    so all the bugs that fly in
    definetly wont make it back

    i know its not a poem but i thought it would be an appropriate time to share it though lol
