Ocimum Basilicum
As long as there’s been damsels in distress,
Basil’s powers have been put to the test,
Should I share a sprig with you,
You’ll fall in love… there’s nothing you can do,
And, would you believe,
That you’ll never leave?
Ahhh… sweet, sweet basil,
It’s hard to get my fill,
Ahhh… sweet, sweet basil,
Blurt, “St. Josephwort,”
Yell, “Krishnamul,”
Call it what you will.
You can [...]

You’re so special,
You’re so cool,
You make me hot,
So, why not,
Quit being a fool,
And, get a re-fill,
Of methyl…
I think I will!
Methyl cinnamate,
Tastes great,
Gives my mouth a thrill,
Eating basil.
Methyl sulfonyl methane,
Is critical to remain,
Without enough sulfur,
I’ll surely suffer.
Methyl salicylate,
Turns to a fire state,
Setting off a spark,
In the dark.
Menthyl acetate,
I won’t hesitate,
’cause I don’t need to catch my [...]

Mentha Piperita
I thought I had a hint,
About mint,
But, I didn’t.
What do I know?
Turns out Pluto,
Had a falling out,
Over the nymph, Minthe,
Once found out about…
Pluto’s wife, Persephone,
Couldn’t leave it alone,
On the world’s stage,
She flew into rage,
Turning Minthe,
A lowly plant,
To be trod upon,
And, well…
No matter how much rave or rant,
Pluto could not undo the spell,
But, the pain [...]

Upon suggestion,
Try aroma ingestion,
And, don’t be afraid,
To put your hands on,
Medicine can masquerade,
Right under your nose,
So, let it happen,
Chemicals fill the air,
As I mist their limbs,
Antiseptics –
Naturally happen,
Preventive care,
As I pick their bounty.
(I could go on ad nauseum,
But, you see,
That’s one of the things they do for me –
Take feelings like nausea… and cure ‘em.)
Hands-on [...]

Lighten Up

Things aren’t right,
Without enough light,
I know,
The plants won’t grow,
But, what about Human,
Do we need to let the light in?
When I’m there standing,
Among the planting,
I come to an understanding –
It’s enlightening.
The light ray,
Has a way,
Of removing black and blues,
Like a dose of good news,
The light makes me shine,
… makes me feel real fine.
When the days grow [...]

O2 And You

If you’ve ever had the urge,
To submerge,
Then you’ll know,
What I’m talking about,
Because O2,
Is not something,
You can go…
I suppose that’s something,
You already knew?
But, did you know,
All the things O2,
Can do for you?
Some believe,
It will relieve,
Sinuses, headaches and stress,
While increasing,
Energy and alertness,
So start releasing,
Some CO2,
And, breath in,
Those touting the benefit,
May go so far,
As to visit an “oxygen [...]

Why Grow Up?

Why Grow Up?
It might be too soon,
To call me a loon,
You’ve had a rational lapse?
Is it that you think,
You’re too mature,
Well, take a drink,
From the fountain of youth,
It’ll help you nurture,
A better nature.
There’s wheatgrass, spinach and soy,
To enjoy,
Any of these,
* Can “almost” sustain,
* Are thought food for the brain,
* And, will help [...]

Under Pressure

Have you ever had the pleasure,
Of being under pressure?
It just might be the cure,
Sound peculiar?
You’ll feel in a happy way,
On a high pressure day,
But, low pressure,
Can depress for sure,
The lower the pressure,
The more, more, more.
If you go into space,
You’ll need to find a place,
For your flesh and bones to stand,
Some place that feels,
Like your standing [...]
