Pushing up Daisies

Pushing up daisies is just my speed.
I'm mother nature and I feel the need,
to procreate.

I feel the need, to plant the seed,
that'll last for a millennium.

To lie in wait, until conditions are right,
to burst forth with all my minions.

To heal the scars of landscape Mars,
and shatter all pessimistic opinions.

For I am the mother of all invention.
I work my ways without intention.

But through the power of natural selection,
and survival of the fittest.

I turn bland to rich, and rich to wonder.
I do not pillage. I do not plunder.

So don't mess with me...

... or you will be pushing up daisies.

LOL! You have my respect, I'll not mess with you, Mother Nature -- or should I say, "Father Ronald?" Nice poem.

Sooner or later we are all going to be pushing up daisies, Ron, but I sure don't want to do anything to put that reality in rush mode. I hope Mother Nature continues to sow seeds to replace all of the things we humans have trashed in the name of progress. Clever humor with a solid message. Nice work, Ron.
Take care,
