“EVEN MORE THAN AUDREY II !” a poem. a.k.a.: “The Inevitable Conflict Between Mothers & Daughters?” Freya’s Day: August 3, 2018.
AUDREY had a daughter: She was EVEN-MORE,
Than-anything-you-can-even-imagine – got honey bees by the score!
These flowers, like a daughter & mother? A personality clash?
I don’t think so – just so similar, and, since mama has the “cache,”*
SHE CAN WIELD HER CONTROL, so there’s NO clash of personality,
It’s more like: two control freaks, in the same room – so much simila-ar-ity!
So, this flower daughter, young and wild – fluttered-around-in-the-breeze,
EVEN-MORE – was oblivious – to the call of the honey bees!
She wanted NO attention, pollination and such,
And EVEN-MORE than that – she liked her own fragrant touch!
She wasn’t sad;
She wasn’t bad.
But – did she EVEN-MORE make the honey bees mad!
BEES! Flitting from flower to flower,
‘Cause: Aren’t flowers stationary? – hour by hour?
But EVEN-MORE, the flower girl, had fine plans of her own,
To wanted to make – an empire – she could call her home!
Wild and Free, like the honey bee,
She was the prettiest flower I ever did see!
BUT – one day – a long time hence,
She FINALLY just decided – to sit on the fence!
She got a nice pot – one of her own,
And watched the garden lawn – getting mown!
YET – EVEN-MORE was lonely – and mostly all alone,
So when Seymour 2 B did come, with his special tone,
SHE DECIDED TO – GO FOR IT ALL,
She quivered and shuddered – and let out a call:
And Seymour II came – and loved her A LOT,
As she sat there, in her ceramic pot!
The question they have (had) was about SOME CHANGE –
Is-it-possible – to relinquish control – and so to rearrange!?
And this is where our poem takes a pause:
RELINQUISHING CONTROL? Just be-caw-se?!
EVEN-MORE, like other girls, didn’t care for her mama,
‘Cause Audrey (II)’s controlling ways – break things like a comma;
THEY may-not-compete, BUT – when mama’s gone,
The daughter inherits – the whole, dang lawn!
CONTROL! CONTROL! CONTROLLING – FREAK!
IF flowers could walk, EVEN-MORE might-also speak!
So, what do you think? EVEN-MORE+SEE-MORE, a match for the ages?
Well, the consensus is: It should be taken in stages!
With caution and love, (I’ll bet) this flower and bee,
Are sure to “succeed!” Just wait – and see!! 🙂
- cash! 🙂
