What a sad story to tell
Seal your lips and hold it tight
Like Pandora's Box
All the ails of the world within you
A sacrifice for the good of mankind

Wither and die
Forgotten without a cry
In life you did a noble thing
But this matters not
For you are gone and we are the living

A melancholy end to these cauliflower dreams
This vegetable medley tastes better than it seems
Sleep in on Sunday breakfast and let church wait
For today is your day to rest

Naked naps
In shady hammocks
Perverted neighbors watching
But one day they get their comeuppance
