Fumitory

Family: Papaveraceae

Latin: Fumaria officinalis.

 

With malodorus leaves

Incurved and rooted

Trumpet like flowers

Of scented bloom

Oval prickly fruits

Death seeds full

Erect herb which gives a tune

Toxically of doom.

 

Except I can be beneficial to humans that understand

Except that I am fatal

That nature is at hand.
