Garden Weeds - A Short Lament
I see you. You can't hide from me. Why don't you move to the lawn!?
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!
