My gardening friend gave me a plant.
She says “You CAN’T kill this, I’m sure that you CAN’T”.
It looks so perfect in that cute little pot.
You think to yourself, ‘she says I CAN’T kill this…
well really, why not’?
Upon closer inspection you decide she is right,
Its perfect perfection means it can’t be alive.
But alas, a real gardener would never bow low
to give a fake plant.
But how do you know?
As you drive away with your plant in the seat,
You dare to reach over and rub a green leaf.
YES, it does have that rubbery feel.
I CAN’T kill this plant because it is not real.
Now that’s resolved and
you’ve shopped the last store.
You go to your car and open the door.
You throw your purse in and it lands on the plant.
That’s how you know you CAN,
though your friend says you CAN’T.
