Buttercups want to slim down their cholestrol with a diet
To become low-low cups,  they wanna try it
Sunflowers want to stop turning after the sun
And feel free to look away from time to time, just for fun
Forget-me-nots try desperately to remember
My name as I pass them by in September
Foxgloves itch to fit onto some fox finger,
Hold some fox thumb, and on some fox hand linger
Red hot pokers wish they could cool down in style
And get out of the fire once in a while
Indian paintbrushes want to be known as firstnation paintbrushes,
Aboriginal paintbrushes, or native American paintbrushes.
