Deadly Nightshade

Family: Solanaceae

Latin: Atropa belladonna.

 

Leaves the colour of leprosy

Black as blackest fruit could be

Nightshades darkest death are thee.

Of all the herbs and shrubs there be,

Nothing can kill one more than me.

 

In human form a murderous bitch

The dearest friend of the blackest witch

Alluring beauty please come and feed

On my flower sack of seeds

You may vomit and go insane

But you only have yourself to blame.
