Flowers of Westminster
The Sunflower


Everybody loves a sunflower,
a born leader oozing authority.
Not magnolia-regal but

a flower of the people,
twisting towards the sunlight
whichever way the wind blows.

In ascendance we look up to him
but time will strip away the finery
leaving a seedy legacy
