.4. Beware It’s A Killer - Poem by David Threadgold

One simple application
Is what this product needs
A single spray will do the job
To kill off all known weeds

I sprayed it on my driveway
Where weeds began to wilt
Around my brand new doorway
To the kitchen I’d just built

The spray cleared up my problem weeds
It killed the whole lot dead
But now I’ve got a bright red rash
With buzzing in my head

One simple application
It really wasn’t harder
Until it found a way inside
And settled in my larder

    Hilarious! ! ! ! Loved this one. Did the bottle have a big red cross on the side? One does have to be careful, if it killed you off you wouldn't like to be marked down as a weed would you? Ha!
    Great read.
    love and hugs Ernestine XXX
