No Time for Fun

Lone bench sits alone,
Once kids below, above it,
What change witnessed,
Ever lively bunch grew up,
Too busy since, no time for fun.

The Venus flytrap (also referred to as Venus’s flytrap or Venus’ flytrap), Dionaea muscipula, is a carnivorous plant native to subtropical wetlands on the East Coast of the United States in North Carolina and South Carolina.It catches its preyβ€”chiefly insects and arachnidsβ€”with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant’s leaves, which is triggered by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces. When an insect or spider crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap prepares to close, snapping shut only if another contact occurs within approximately twenty seconds of the first strike. 


But which is more dark?
