Working in the Garden

Working in the Garden

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

While working in my garden

Pulling weeds from every place

I also pulled up a little man

With a beard all over his face

 

Bit of a shock I must admit

Then I remembered we’d met before

Because in the garden deep

He operated a ‘down to earth’ bookstore

 

Things living amongst the soil

Could climb down for books to view

This applied to each entity

Except the garden shrew

 

The worms all behaved responsibly

As did each and every gnat

Even as did the great gobblin gopher

Who was exceptionally unhealthily fat

 

But apparently, there’d been conflict

Such as vested volumes rarely returned

Combined with many missing manuscripts

Meant, the shrew’s library card was burned

 

The shrew then sued the library

Tho’ its council was easy to follow

The lawyer he’d hired was a cat

And the complaint ended, with a swallow
