The Lusty Month of May
‘Twas in the lusty month of May
When green buds they were swellin’
We planted seeds in a garden box
Outside of where we’re dwellin’.
We sowed some turnips, onions, peas,
Some carrots, cabbage, greenery,
And flowers with their colours bold
To brighten up the scenery.
Imagine our surprise when on,
The birth date of The Queen,
We spotted ‘mongst the seeded rows
New species in between!
Hybrids flourishing like weeds
With veggies, flowers mating,
Sweet pea and onion were entwined,
in casual copulation.
Clumps of turnip-marigolds
And infant bean-azaleas,
Disturb the earth as they thrust up
In energetic flurry!
Now that the lusty month has passed
Our plants have all been sorted
The compost pile has grown somewhat
From seedlings we’ve aborted.
