Now this here is a noxious weed.
You gotta pull it up real quick
Before it sets some noxious seed.
Make sure your gloves are good and thick
Because it’s full of prickly “ows,”
And sticky sap drips down its stalks.
What’s more, it kills both sheep and cows,
And smells like skunks in dirty socks.
It’s armored, bristled, thorned, and spined.
I love this plant. I think it’s great,
In such a mixed-up world, to find
A thing that it's okay to hate.
