Touch An Aconitum And Die

Just when you thought we humans rule the earth
Here’s a news item outlining new dangers to give wide birth
Aconitinum is a plant that will a human’s organs devastate
Even if not eaten, only touched death may come with all due haste
A gardener in England on a venture capitalists large estate
Without gloves touched an aconitinum and death was his fate
It is a beautiful purple flowering plant that caterpillars love to eat
But with lethality unmatched why would it be in a garden estate
Worse, if you go online you can buy this deadly plant
Purple is a great color for regal trim, but desire for this flower, any sane person should recant.
