As weeds flourish in the flowerbeds
So do the political touts
Gnawing at the roots of the system
Burgeoning and mushrooming
As wild plants flourish on the banks of the lake
So do the kids when given a clean break
Prospering, making headway
Finally seeing the light of the day
Love blooms in lover’s arms
Just as rose amongst the thorns
Spreading is finance far and wide
With nothing left to hide
Life. Birth. Growth.
We all sail in the same boat
Thriving and blooming
Taking everything in our stride, evolving
