Dogs are not like flowers,
Although they both can bloom.
Kittens are like flowers,
They don't know where they are.
It's said that lobsters
Are shying away from
Lobster pots.
It's said that it's
To do with evolution.
It's like us with wisdom
Teeth, it's said that they're
Going away.
When I first heard of
The birds and bees I thought
That surely bees were tiny
It's that day when everything
Changes and nothing is
Ever the same.
Cows do know when
It's Sunday.
Should verse like
Spring unblemished
In one virgin breath?

George Deem's Undated Notebook, probably written between 2002 and 2006, concludes with a draft of "Verse."
