A flower indeed!

I am a beautiful flower That is rooted in this bower. Off limits for the likes of me A nuisance most all will agree. The bees do visit me daily Sweet as the white trumpet lily Who resides with me in this bed; But still my life’s in constant dread Of toxic sprays and solutions A sentence of execution They’ll spray on my bright yellow head. I am prolific and spread But tomorrow I will be gone Because I’m a dandelion.
