~Monkshood~


Staggering violet petals flabbergasted the baby goat

“That is monkshood, it is devilishly poisonous,
never go near it!” – his mother warned

But the violet flowers beguiled the baby goat,

With callow steps he went up to the monkshood

In a noble and patrician manner
he moderately chewed the violet flowers,

The resulting bolus, as it went down
the alimentary canal of baby goat,

Odious poison mixed with the blood stream,
pumped back again through the entire body.

In a jiffy

The puerile framework of baby goat
turned into a venomous cadaver!
