The grass was placed, so were the crops, trees and plants
to keep being useful
bearing more fruits
and to keep looking younger
to grow in the designated place
they were also pruned timely for their growth!
A waste of space if they just lived for themselves
and mere abnormal
soon the space needed to be clean
and safe from unnatural growth
which may manifest diseases otherwise
There was a red flower, plucked one after another,
the plant would keep producing,
it had to, for proving being useful,
or the threat of being discarded or forgotten was high.
At first, pesticides and fertilizers seemed too much,
but now the plant couldn’t live without them.
Afterall, it deserved some support while being useful all the time.
But there was always a competition with other flowers
even one yellow leaf would cause distress and self-loathing
A disease broke that would just not be controlled
nobody knew that the cause was a pesticide reaction
so they kept spraying more and more
very soon flower couldn’t be produced
Thrown away with no hope of being “saved”,
Finally, the plant took a few breaths for itself.
