Monkey Puzzle

long arms with prickled skin
pointing in every directions
a single trunk standing tall
magnificent plant held with affection

each leaf,stiff and sharp to touch
helping with this plant`s protection
pale growth spurts with each year
is something I should mention

standing there, rooted to it`s spot
always capturing much attention
don`t get to close, for it`s quite painful
those spikes can hurt on reflection

Monkey Puzzles are so unique
proud to have one for my selection
though they`re not always pleasant
they're definitelyin my collection !
