It started out as a seed,
And slowly put down roots.
Then struggled to reach the top,
By sending up a shoot.
It pushed its head above the ground,
And then it grew more leaves,
Produced a lot of flowers,
Which attracted many bees.
It grew to become a plant,
Bearing fruit which housed the seeds,
And thus, the cycle continues,
But what precedes?
Did the seed come before the plant?
Or the plant before the seed?
It’s a question that’s been asked before,
And will be asked again, indeed.
