DANDRUFF YELLOW

DANDRUFF YELLOW

Covering all that it can reach,

Powdery under a sycamore-beech…

Dandruff molders

No HEAD AND SHOULDERS*,

This kind of stuff can reach!

Yellow-green dust one sees,

floating on the breeze…

Tree flowers make

Pollen to partake

In vast sex parties.

Flowering trees with petals

Pay with nectar–bee vittles–

From the non-petal sifts

Great pollen drifts,

That disturb us not a little!
