Riffing on comments about those pesky purple flowers which can ‘wreck’ a clean car in a matter of hours.

No car cover, no roof,

No strategic parking plan,

No attempt to speak aloof,

Just a jab at some tree sand.

A shout for cleaner streets,

A suggested lavender ban,

A yell at breezy beats

Which cause petals to land.

The bold audacity

Which fires up a man –

Careless, subjective beauty –

The jacaranda understands.
