Let’s face facts-
Flowers are stupid!
Who needs em?
Always showing up uninvited to all of your big events-
Your child’s birth
I don’t recall inviting you to any of these occasions, flowers!
Everybody is always bringing you as their “plus one.”
Everybody wants credit for bringing you to the party.
Flowers are such cheap dates.
And they never want to leave or, at least, nobody ever seems to want show flowers the exit.
They want the flowers to stay in your house for a while.
Usually hanging out in the kitchen, hogging all of the sunshine.
And Grandma just won’t shut up about how pretty you are and how nice you smell – cram it, Grandma!
I’m on to you, flowers!
I’m sorry we can’t all be as pretty and fragrant and popular as you!
I’ll never be invited to all of the parties.
I’ll just be out here being bitter,
With my fellow weeds.
