Thorns and roses, roses and thorns,

Deception of the most delightful kind.

The sweet smell lures passerby in,

The petals enticingly red.

But oh, how bitter the betrayal!

The sharp sting of a pricking thorn!

If only they had searched for sign of treachery before!

Now passerby will be wary,

Of anything so seemingly sweet.

For bitterness is paralyzing,

Stopping adventurers in their track,

For they fear the familiar

Scent of the rose.

For a rose, by any other name,

Smells and looks the same,

Hidden in the peaceful glade

A rose.

A weapon of mass destruction.
