Slippery Slopes

To flying bugs and crawling ants,

A bright bouquet of pitcher plants

Becomes a water park with rides–

They can’t resist the slippery slides!

And once inside the saccules,

They’re trapped and drown in nectar pools.

And no, I’m not being frivolous–

This water park’s carnivorous!
