The Cactus And The Rose.

 

Strange that they should get to meet,

the cactus and the rose

when you think about the distance

between where each one, it grows.

 

But meet they did and do you know,

they felt it, love’s first bite;

the attraction instantaneous,

love at the first sight.

 

The problem, though, was painful

in more ways than one,

it finished off that romance

before it had begun:

 

Your prickles are like needles

and they pierce when I go near.”

The Cactus became quite ashamed

when he, from the Rose, did hear.

 

And you, my dear, have many thorns

that stab me really deep.”

The Cactus sounded outraged

and the Rose began to weep.

 

The situation hopeless,

they reluctantly did part,

both the victim of a romance

which should not have had a chance to start.

 

They did not forget each other,

and the pain was one that then did stick,

one that they will pass along

to those that dare to pick.
