POISON IVY—DECEPTIVE BEAUTY!

POISON IVY–DECEPTIVE BEAUTY!

In the autumn of the year,

Poison ivy shines…

Bright reds and yellows

Ornamental as a vine.

Don’t let it deceive you,

Only a single touch…

Could start a fearful rash

Which you would regret much!

Some use gloves to cut it down

And burn it in a fire…

Standing in the smoke, and LO–

You get what you least desire!

Poison ivy is pervasive,

It knows not when to stop…

Unless you kill it outright

And want to touch it—DO NOT.
