A New Garden Fork....
I've gone and bought a new garden fork
I would love to be serious and do that horticultural talk
I'm trying to get excited about digging up weeds
and planting lots of new garden seeds
Still waiting for my gardening mo jo
it will kick in when the grass needs to be cut so low
I get distracted though ya see and gardening is no more
I think I'd rather be doing some other unsightly chore
There are those with fingers so green
with gardens, the best I've ever seen
I'm jealous of those folk who love it so much
and pop along to gardening clubs just to keep in touch
When I make a start I'll be absolutely fine
unless my mate comes round mine with some wine
One cannot be in charge of a mower when drunk
I may end up with borders that are well and truly sunk
I tried growing veg but that din't go well
my greenhouse turned into a triffid growing hell
I grew a few wonky spuds
better than nowt I suppose that's quite good
I''ll leave it to Titchmarsh he's a professional you know
give him a spade he'll find something to grow
Maybe I could invite him round mine for tea
he'll run a mile when he realises it's me.
Thank you for reading today,
