IN THE GARDEN

Good news. The domain is up and running with behind the scenes help from Di and Teena. Thank you. I was talking to a guy on the domain help line in America yesterday and it was -6 degrees there and 40 degrees (approx 110) here in Mt Gambier, South Australia. What a contrast.

Today’s poem:

IN THE GARDEN

The air was alpine fresh and the lake surface glistening
Bird song trilled for those who were listening
What a great afternoon, thought Glenn feeling chipper
A perfect time to start up his new whipper snipper

It purred smoothly in his experienced hands
Trimmed edges effortlessly at the most gentle command
But while promenading proudly around his neat lawn
Glenn spied a dog poo and he wanted it gone

It looked dry as dust so he thought he’d attack
With his fearless whipper snipper, just give it a smack
And it would harmlessly splinter and shatter
But it was still moist so it splished and splattered

It splattered with power, it splattered with grace
It splattered all over Glenn’s spluttering face
Flew up his nostrils, did not want to be wasted
Left him a flavour the worst he’d ever tasted

It splattered his T-shirt, it splattered his jeans
It was very much a poo splishing, splattering scene
Poor Glenn hastily switched off the power
And raced indoors for an emergency shower
