Other Non-Magical Plants
When you're feeling blue
try some lily oil.
When your heart's depressed,
the oil improves!
When you think you can't
Lily oil finds you can can!
Everyone can can can!
You can can can too!
Side effects are all in the past.
That headache is done for at last.
Rose, my dear friend,
You made that swelling end...
Lilies holds the key to your heart!
Though roses would be just as smart!
