Just a plant!

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.

    • Unfortunately!, but loved writing it, it just came in a torrent. It’s a pity that we are so uncaring about our world. Thanks for reading, and commenting on my poems. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.
