Can anyone here figure out this brain teaser?

I can't do it but I'd like to know if anyone here knows how.

It's the Petals around the Rose brainteaser...

I've been staring at this thing for the longest time and I don't get it.

Suspiciously close to polar bears around an asshole, and no one needs that kind of drama.

OK. I got it. But only after reading that very revealing post by that person who was talking about the metaphoricalness of the name of the game. So, basically, I cheated
