The Cactus

The cactus seems the ideal lover;
It asks so little, bears a lot.
Adorable with colours,
ripe with fruit though dry and hot.

The cactus says to love it
making promises divine,
but those who choose to hug it
get a face full of its spines.

The cactus is not evil,
this is merely what it does.
Just keep your love away from it,
It is fine out in the sun.

  1. I have never thought of a cactus that way! Great work!
