RDP Monday: Verdant

Monbretia 07.07.2018

Why does my garden not grow
so lush and green as the others
If a daisy shows its head
A weed arrives and smothers
Everyone has blades of grass
in the lawn exactly the same size
I even tried to measure mine
but that was not so wise
For every blade of grass that grows
An ant moves in at the roots
And when it rains the slugs are happy
they put on their wellington boots
I even planted a rose bush
but it was a caterpillar delight
And then the aphids also arrived
and they all began to fight
The neighbour is so proud of his shrubs
So dense and full of green
A magpie built its nest in mine
And my cat uses it as a latrine
I decided to do my best
Have a lawn, but that too is evil
suddenly the grass disappeared
Was attacked by many a weevil
But now I have the ideal solution
You might think it is quite drastic
I have the best and most beautiful flowers
And even the leaves are plastic

Two slugs mating
