The Lyrics

This one is for Peter Anderson's One Week Notice challenge (Week 37) this time hosted once again by Agrimorfee. Just like in Rick and Morty... "I'm a houseplant! I'M HOUSEPLANT MATT!!!"
This houseplant in my home
Swapped with me instead
I'm seeded inside this pot
Can't call out "S.O.S."
Near dead
With thorns I've been spiked
I'm kept bay windowside
My leaves are green as lettuce
Bugs chewed me with small bites
I've frowned...
I... don't... know... why... I'm... thrown... in---side...

This plant's soul's so awkward
These roots are now my feet
My apperance is crazy
Fearing my safety
Budding and pollinating
With my metamorphosis

Movement's now limited, Can't run!
Angled towards the sun
Chugged down Miracle-Gro, It's my favorite drink
Scary that I'm thinking that, My brain's human
Don't... think... I'm... high... not... weed... plant... life...
Lost... my... mind... since I've... grown... stems... to... thrive
This strict sunshine diet has made me so peeved
Sandwhich has left my plate
Switched with photosynthesis

Place my mind back in it's dome
Since flora makes me frown
Hate this metamorphosis
Strive with photosynthesis
Life's no fun with these fern parts
Once thought life was hard
Was stressed out with such tension
Existence still ain't pleasin'
Now sucked into this shrub
Trampled as bees buzz
Need that photosynthesis
With my metamorphosis
My... dirt's... too... dry...
Need... H...2...O... to... thrive

Great job, once you get past the odd forced pronunciation of "photosynthesis" and "metamorphosis" to fit the pace. Kind of a Edgar Allan Poe/Franz Kafka vibe going there, the varied details fit the song's mood while still being silly. (Kafka you might know wrote a story titled "Metamorphosis" about a guy who turns into a cockroach).

It's not easy being green! Reading this I figure we all oughta cut back on GMO (Genetically Engineered Foods) before it's too late.
