I thought it was my garden.
My humble effort at creativity.
An experiment that has gone on many years.
With the plants I’ve always loved, with occasional newcomers.
Just simple harmless dirt, some flowers and weeds.
I didn’t ask you to help.
But yet you can’t keep your hands off of it.
Of course you think you can make it better, oh and neater too.
We wouldn’t want the garden to be messy.
I thought it was my place to play, to succeed and fail.
No, I can’t have even the dirt.
