       Try to force a flower,
       and what do you have?
       A mutilated bud.

       Try to be happy,
       and very existence becomes
       trying.

       Try to live long
       by running and jumping,
       eating by the book,
       sleeping wisely,

       and die truly old
       in a nursing home
       beside a pot
       of plastic flowers.
