ARE FLOWERS WHORES? (by Elizabeth Smart)

Flowers aren’t choosy
Which bee which bug
Come one come all.

Bees and bugs
Aren’t choosy either
All entries sweetly natural.

Imagine a flower
Closing its throat
Against a bee it thought a bore.

Who said object
Should excite act
That that was moral?

If only the verb
The act acts,
Why call your sister a whore?

Sin and shame!
Abandon the word
Moral. You can see it’s immoral!
