A short little ditty…
There was a woman named CeeLee
Who planted her tomatoes while sipping spiked tea
She realized too late and could only curse her fate
The tomatoes, they stared at the hose 10 feet away gloomily
“Aw, hell no! Are you kidding me?!”
Twice on the daily, she hauled her water in buckets
Calling in vain, CeeLee’s son was smart and his duties he was a-ducking
Glare blind and swaying, water squishing in her shoes and braying
How her arms being stretched past her feet was just so lame!
Crabby as CeeLee was, her garden grew and grew
Yielding up fresh treats and a surprise (who knew?)
In the midst of her garden, sat the punchline, still covered in dew
The moral of the story is never let life pass you by
If you do, you’ll look back later and sigh
For what had been missed under a bright laughing sky
Remember to laugh when you can!
This came from nature, the joke though, it’s on me.
Someone mixed in the wrong type of fertilizer!
