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
