Stings attached

Nettles that have stings attached
defend the ground they need.
Hardly a plant that really matched
regardless of its seed.

They spread their leaves with tiny hair
which penetrates our skin
and leaves some nasty poison there.
And so the nettles win.

Tolerated different plants
must cope with lower ground.
Ivy, for instance, sees a chance
when it’s not upwards bound.


Aus meinem Buch:

Especially in times of the Corona crisis our view on nature suffers a slight change. We suddenly notice that to protect ourselves we have to protect nature. Even serious themes can be pressed into rhymes.
