The plant is dead

but we continue to water it

Maybe it will come back to life?

How about some fertiliser?


Maybe it just seems dead

I think I saw it move!

The plant is playing dead

It is tricking us, testing us

Pull the roots out, put them in new soil

It’s pointless

The plant is dead.

No revival, no survival


Put a plastic one in its place!

No one will notice!

It looks better now

Everyone can see it

The plant is playing alive.

It won’t ever grow.

Because it is dead.
