My Green What-You-Ma-Call This (limerick)

Updated on September 7, 2012

I wondered why plants didn’t grow

With water such care I’d bestow

To them I would hum

I even asked mum

They’re plastic you dumb so and so

      Loved it, good one.

      My husband brought home a beautiful white potted rose bush, I said it's beautiful but is it real? of course it wasn't, we kept it, to remind him to stick to bringing home flowers. :)
