Flytrap Famous

Flytrap Famous


The Venus Flytrap is so famous,

Conspicuously carnivorous;

A surprise sprung for the unwary

In the pink jaws traps trip quite hairy–

So when the gates shut

The bug’s gobbled up.

It’s not such a horror or loving tippity twitchet

It eats what it catches or what comes to visit.

It makes tiny black seeds after white flowers

From all the spiders and flies it devours.

The sensitive plant snares what it needs

And counts one, two, three, four time to eat.

Now meat-loving plants are some weird turn of events

That surely would make a wide-eyed herbivore wince.
