A plant grew up along side of the road,
with a strident red scented flower,
that followed the sun across the sky,
radiating beauty, happiness and survival.
Nobody really took note,
as they rushed by in their cars,
till one day a car drove over the plant
sending it into extinction,
there was a big outcry,
botanists looked to see if they could salvage any seed,
while the driver made a statement
to the press saying he did not know
what all the fuss was about,
as it was just a plant growing on the side of the road.
