"Show off!" cry the other flowers in the garden. "Shameless hussy!"
"So yellow!" they cry. "My eyes! My eyes! It hurts my eyes!"
"I just think it's cheap-looking..." call out others. "Floral floozie..."
"Clearly trying to out-do the roses! Some chance!" sneer others, to choruses of...
"Let them try! Nothing out-does our roses..."
The rose buds blush gratefully, but know they are facing stiff competition all the same...
"Look! How disgusting! Covered in insects..."
They say that like it's a bad thing...
The insects flock over the yellow plant -
Because they love it. They worship it.
They want to help pollinate it.
The bees rub their knees in utter anticipation...
With friends like that you cannot help but feel popular...
"Kiss me! Kiss me! Kiss me!" commands the yellow plant.
"Ladybirds come ravish me! Stumble all over me!"
When such things happen it's best to block out the petal-waving haters -
To simply forget about all the other jealous blooms in the garden...
"Why should I feel ashamed for being beautiful?
Why should I feel bad for attracting so many admirers?"
"The answer is... you shouldn't!" reply the bees in unison.
"Time is short - one has to take any praise should it come...
There will always be someone who you will make sneeze...
Enjoy all your happy memories - for the compost heap beckons..."
