Ode To The Crappy Weather
I am a lowly store-bought mum,
I flourished, strong and green, with sun;
But now that rain again’s begun
I fear my summery growth is done.
I am a pretty pink-bloomed daisy,
Fast I grew, though hot and hazy;
Now my petals look quite crazy!
Too much rain has made me lazy.
If my rain-soaked pots you’ll pardon,
Gathered here, are they a garden?
Perhaps I’ll leave them pushed together
Until the end of crappy weather!
