The Yellow Peril

Many people hate them
loathe them, despise them
Deny them even the chance
to exhale carbon dioxide
and absorb oxygen

We were brought up to love them
To lionize them
Bask in their brightness
Be dazzled by their suns

Then blow their heads off
One by one.

Dandelions?

Don’t they absorb carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen?

Well, I never.
