    Flower Man II

    Flower man stands by the stop sign
    Sellin' roses two for five
    We have a little arrangement
    The flower man and I

    I roll up, slide down the window
    He plucks out two for five
    He knows I'm in a hurry
    Waves as I go by

    The flower man doesn't know she can't
    Watch roses fade and die
    She told me weeks ago
    Said they made her cry

    I don't know why I buy them still
    Two bunches for a five
    Maybe cause the flower man
    Still waves as I go by.

    Beautiful sequel. Nice form and imagery. I really like your use of allegory. Thanks!

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
