Tall poppy syndrome

The pansies were a happy bunch.

Until they noticed the high rise development.

Oh, how it towered above them.

Naturally, the pansies grew resentful.

So they hatched a plan ...


  1. Why do we let the tall poppies get to us so?

  2. it's always the cheeriest looking ones that hold the biggest scissors! (I have a sneaking suspicion our violas are hatching a similar plan regarding their gargantuan bedfellow just on the other side of the property line. Eek, human neighbourly relations may be strained)

  3. This reminds me of the song "The Trees" by Rush. Instead of hatchet, axe and saw, it's a scissors. Sinister.
