Breaking Bad Epilogue (Reimagined)
In a full and fructifying garden
surrounded by pickets of tungsten,
calla lilies and cattleya sashay
in gentle island tradewinds. . .
Shielded by a dearth of what's ill and wrong,
buffered by a will so strong,
the garden deflects all of nefarious bent
with the skill of its bald caretaker.
"Flower whisperer, gardener magical,
keeper of secret crucibles
(filled with secret content)," so say all the villagers
of their ex-drug lord neighbor.
