Pesky Weed
Lynn Mergen


“Weed out!”, I say
I pull
I pick
I dig
You will resist
Stubborn and pesky
Unwanted and noxious
You don’t fool me
With your pretty little flowers
I will come after you
My rake at the ready
Do not mess with my garden
“Weed out!”, I say

I once had to deal with a weed that was so stubborn, I had to use a crowbar to pry the rootball out of the dirt!

This unobtrusive little poem "places" me in the garden's midst. Thank you, Lynn.
