Titan Arum

keep this if you think,'s something to long for.                   
another flower dressed in pink,
.....but wise to forego.                   
rotten flesh, is the stink,
.....fragrant aroma shot.                   
ever waiting for the bloom,
.....hope you like to wait.                   
never décor your room,
.....unless you like to be irate.                   
shadow of your doom,
.....a vile existence of disdain.                    


-  The Titan Arum, otherwise known as the Corpse Flower, gives off a horrid stench similar to rotting flesh.  Additionally, its bloom is sporadic, usually once only every few years.
