Toadflax, A Wildflower

A toadflax doesn't care
Where it grows wild
Dazzlingly thriving in full sunlight
Near babbling brooks 
On dry banks
By the roadside
In the meadows
Even in people's gardens
A troublesome weed
And a beautiful one at that
A flower that I bet irritates a bee
Because it prefers 
not to be kissed
It's mouth
Staying completely closed
Until a bee capable of forcing its way in
And reaching the nectar with its tongue
Comes along
