A beautiful creation that can be discussed in ten pages,
Or paper to be created and made into wages.

An object for not-so-smart birds to run into.
Trees can be really annoying, who knew?

A plant that creates air for me to breath.
More useful than a wreath.

Something to look at and say, "Please don't kill it!
There are living creatures within it!"

A creation to just look at.
One might even notice a cat.

May the cat be stuck? :P I find that my cat get stuck often. And then she howls.

It's almost...satirical. I think. But correct me if I'm wrong. I haven't used that word since...March. In English. :P

Ahaha, the cat was random. I like how you don't take yourself too seriously with these. This is a poem that you could have been so dramatic and descriptive, and, well, heavy with, but you kept it light. I like it.
