Being Picky

You can pick a dandelion
And you can tell the time
You can pick forget-me-nots
And then recite the rhyme

You can smell the cow parsley
To tell if it will rain
Or You can pick some daisies
And make a daisy chain

But never pick a buttercup
Just leave it as you find
Someone who's lost a buttock
Will not be far behind.
