Garden Weeds - A Short Lament

I see you. You can't hide from me. Why don't you move to the lawn!?

It's the battle that goes on all spring, summer, and fall!

Calling all gardeners! Battle stations!


Garden, oh Garden, I don't know why do you do it?

You welcome the veggies, and all the weeds to it!

I've prep'ed up the soil and planted the good seeds.

But the first thing I see each year are those weeds!

So hale and so hardy, you would think I should know,

A weed birthday party's going on down below!

To weed first or water... must I remember?

The worst thing is: it'll persist 'til November!
