Subtle Subversion

Subtle Subversion

A Poem by Bradley
"

Weeds need to be destroyed, lest they smother us all.

"

From the Weed


Look at that flower,


A green tower


Soaring over my head


And topped in red


Symbol of life and vibrance


I dare not use violence.


On the ground I struggle and toil


Covering precious fertile black soil,


And when seeds fall


They’ll see no light at all.


A quiet victory I will have won


By simply blocking out the sun.


 


From the Flower


Look at that weed


Smothering my seeds.


I will wilt in sorrow


My heart hollow,


For seeds are to be flowers


And feel cool rain showers,


Dance with the breeze


And get tickled by bees.


But for the weed I also wilt,


The gardener will come and witness its guilt


And with gentle fingers employed


You, weed, will be destroyed

Bradley
Started as a conversation between a flower and a weed, but it feels better like this.
