Ivy

Creeping and crawling upwards
Yearning towards the sun,
Begging for light, while scaling the walls
Snakelike, enchanting and charming

Put the plant with something else,
Ivy League presents us honor, evoking a certain era
Poison Ivy scars and bubbles the skin, to be avoided on your journeys
And the evergreen, ever-mean ivy continues on its path.

Where the buildings touch the ground you are reminded that they
in fact, are the intruders,
not the ivy

That the ivy persists, and climbs
forever remembering the needs for its own survival
oh, what we could lear
