Metal flower

Silver petals
All the same
All perfect
Carefully arranged

No flaw, no claw
No damaged part
All symmetrical
Right from the start

Designed, created
To be strong
Made meticulously
Nothing went wrong

But something did
They missed the point
A flower is more
Than measured joints

Without the love
The breath of life
This flower is just
A metal knife
