Did those petals weep?
And did those petals weep Vincent?
Knowing no almonds could they form
When from the tree a blossoming twig was torn
But I can see you smile Vincent
As with pleasure a new painting's born
As the tree cries with untold grief forlorn
Okay you have cut off one ear
Which is some recompense that's true
I am talking of life, not about you
Humans show how we can destroy
You have shown us new ways to see
I see the use of insects and bees

This is of course is a parody of the use of pesticides that are not only harmful to insects but humans as well. Sadly selling dangerous chemicals like this freely will probably result in the destruction of many useful wild flora and essential insects that fertilize flowers and plants. If this continues we shall probably have one more lifeless planet in this solar system!
