A Carnivorous Sponge

Oh! The pretty, pretty flowers of the deep, deep sea
Alive in the depths incongruously
I wonder what scents would you have for me?
Do your colours blaze bright with vibrancy?

Alas! Alas! It's not to be!
This brute eats meat like the Ping Pong Tree!
It digests shrimp with heartless glee
There's no honey in the deep, deep sea

Hahah! Thank you! It looks like a flower, fireworks and a really battered bicycle wheel.

Now do a haiku about the poison dart frog. ;)

Oh dear! Maybe someday perhaps possibly if I feel like it and I can.
