Vipers

 

There are vipers in the roses,

which should come as no surprise

when you think these flowers

give rise to many lies.

A symbol of such romance

it can knock you off your feet

and blind you to the truth

that contains so much deceit.

These vipers twist along the stems,

disregarding all the thorns,

that go and pierce you violently

and leave your heart all torn.

They coil their way between the blooms,

so listen for that hiss,

before you do succumb once more

to that lethal toxic kiss.

There are vipers in the roses,

and snakes that hand them out,

blood will surely flow from them

so listen to your doubt.
