    I grow dandeLIONS in my yard
    and everyone laughs at me/
    those with ROSE colored BUSHes
    and LIElac SINted antonyms and SINKNOWnyms
    that populate the explaNATIONS
    of how their green thumbs are bigger than mine
    Yet I tell them "but, my mind is free"
    and more CONtinue to laugh at me,
    those with TWOlips whose pollen is
    carried away by red, white, and blue bees
    to impregnate virgin soils and spoil the land
    with sanguine roots of proPAgNDA that
    grow into bamboo trees of maligned
    moral magik / that jades the view with
    smoke and mirror tricks of...
    WHOREtiCULTURAL MENtal gene splicing/
    of TWOlips to bam "booms"
    of carbon mushrooms they plant in somebody
    elses yard...

    I grow dandeLIONS in my yard
    because even when they try to
    cut my lawn my dandeLIONS grow back
    stronger / my yard more populated
    ...there's power in numbers...
    the children will pick my dandeLIONS
    with reverence and behave as if they have
    found the most prized possession...
    because there's hope in birth and naturalness /
    akin to their innocence when picking

    no special hybrids of faux floral messages that
    look and smell good but bastard to the root
    lost in gardens without truth among
    the rose colored BUSHes and TWOlips
    that adorn humanity with carbon soot.

    BLAK.............

    DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNN, I FELT THIS DEEP INSIDE
    IN THE PLACE THAT IS THE SOURCE OF MY PRIDE
    IN ME, IN US AND THOSE DANDELIONS IN YOUR YARD
    LOVIN U LOVIN U IS NEVER HARD
    WHEN SO FULLY AND BEAUTIFULLY EXPRESSED
    I BLUSH BENEATH MY DRESS
    FROM THE CONSUMPTIVE FIRE IN YOUR WORDS
    I EMERGE TO FLY FREE AS A BIRD
    WOKEN BY THE SUN FROM NIGHTLY SLUMBER
    FOR SURE THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS
    I AND YOU AND THEM IS WE
    SHAPING OUR FUTURE IN FLOETRY
    PEACE!
