    His mind full of happy CPs
    His thoughts consumed by CPs
    Drosera
    Sarracenia
    Darlingtonia
    Nepenthes
    Are a few of his favorite things.
    He is consumed with carnivorous plants
    Their oddities and beauty take his breath away.
    The carnivorous plants take over
    All he does is for carnivorous plants
    Capturing their food instead of buying his
    Giving them the best room of the house
    Running humidifiers day and night
    All he thinks about are his plants
    How he could improve their growing habits
    What role did they play in the whole scheme of things
    Did colonists use carnivorous plants?
    He wonders.
    They take over his speech.
    Do you grow carnivorous plants?
    He asks repeatedly
    No? Pity they are very fun.
    He replies to their Nos
    He then beguiles them with his knowledge of CPs
    Well he thinks that they benefit from this knowledge.
    Unfortunately, his hobby separates him
    People laugh,
    Scurry away,
    Avoid him,
    And ignore him
    Because of his obsession.
    Yet he is blissfully ignorant
    Going about his hobby
    Going about watering
    Going about feeding
    Going about talking
    Going about doing
    All things carnivorous plants
    Ode to the Carnivorous Plant grower
    who is blissfully ignorant of the outside word, and loves his plants.

    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    thats cool! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    here is another, although maybe not technically a poem, it still sort-of fits..

    "Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus fly trap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition."

    I like that! That was great. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I had one I posted a while back but I can't find it. I was going to post it again with yours. Probably deleted in the clean up. If I find it, I'll add it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
