Ode to Weeds Like Lies

Half a truth is often a great lie.” Benjamin Franklin

Even weeds have ugly flowers with seeds to disseminate,

Even weeds invade and degrade desirable plant communities,

Even harmful weeds run wild like thistles, spurges, ragworts,

And toxic hogweeds that burn, blister and scar human touch.
