When the flowers of buttercups
drop their leaves, there is an orb
left with sharp points that catch
on your socks when you pass by.
Hitchhikers intent on traveling
to set down roots elsewhere.

This is the way to learn
whether or not you like butter.
No need to take a taste,
just the reflection
of a single buttercup
flashing under your chin
will tell you the answer.

There is a Italian chicken
from the island of Sicily
who has with two combs
running side by each,
front to back. Perhaps
they like butter, too,
with a little sage and garlic.
