Don’t Judge

_____________________________________

Is that purple violet a weed?

No, Indeed!

*

Is the dandelion a pest?

Surely you jest!

*

What do I see in these beauties?

Precious cuties!

*

Let’s stop being so plant snooty

Stop judging every small flower

Without knowing its great power

No indeed, surely you jest! Precious cuties!
