Danger lurks everywhere

often right before our eyes

so much pretty poison

ready for any grasping hand

we pride ourselves

on our dominion

over everything we see

while sweet blooms

hold that pretty poison

at the ready for us to falter

it is never the error that costs

the mistakes are not the source

of our damage

but our arrogance

in the face of nature

will someday

lead to our undoing – Caroline A. Slee
