a pretty a day

(and every fades)

is here and away

(but born are maids

to flower an hour

in all,all)

o yes to flower

until so blithe

a doer a wooer

some limber and lithe

some very fine mower

a tall;tall

some jerry so very

(and nellie and fan)

some handsomest harry

(and sally and nan

they tremble and cower

so pale:pale)

for betty was born

to never say nay

but lucy could learn

and lily could pray

and fewer were shyer

than doll.  doll

.: :.

I think that this poem represents the wastefullness of American consumerism by comparing women to flowers who are mowed over by the strong and powerful government.

I think this poem is about taking away a girl's innocence. The "fine mowers" are metaphorical for most guys and the "flowers" are girls. We all know the "betty's" out there (the sl*ts) -"for betty was born to never say nay", then there are those that can learn, and others that can pray. E.E. Cummings was a father to a daughter, so he is writing about hating these guys.
