Heart of Kudzu
The Implacable Force Sans Any Intention Period
In Dixie, all us kin with kinfolk breed,
Like that ol' weed--a funny kind o' stuff--
That got a thing like us for its own seed,
And like us keeps a-seedin' plenty 'nough!
While like my cousin Sissy it be tough,
What with it havin' likewise one ***** name!
And like my first true love, my brother Buff,
It climbs on any hind or hunted game!
While like my Granny Moo, my second flame,
It ain't but dumber than a cow's patoot!
And like my pee-pee here it got no aim,
Or for a rubber gives a dadgum hoot!
Why, it cain't even THINK at all right clear,
Like Pa on gettin' stuck up Granny's rear!
