Garden In Revolt - Poem by Fernando Ayala

my yellowbells spoke with me today

fresh from a pogrom with the bermuda grass

they're dying, they say

from thirst cutting like a cuirass

deciding not to spare a day

even if accused of being crass

by blocking the path as if there to stay

till i happened in that hour to pass

so, they ask me, should I delay

ere they turn to the likes of grass

that drinks fluid that's gone astray

regardless of source, with no class!
