Garden Fruit

Today I picked the garden fruit,
To make complete a tasty meal;
And came across an aphid brute.
Today I picked the garden fruit,
Beside my house of holes and root;
To emphasis my scalloped veal.
Today I picked the garden fruit;
To make complete a tasty meal.

I cleared the vines of ripened crop,  
Then freed my back from painful stoop;
And took inside to finely chop.
I cleared the vines of ripened crop,
To later make some veggie soup;
And then I’ll go to bed and drop.
I cleared the vines of ripened crop;
Then freed my back from painful stoop.

Jabberwocky Redux

Jabberwocky Redux
 
                  After reading too much Aquinas
 
Would an aphid reside in an onager’s ear
if the onager’s master spoke Twi?
Or a Gascony scop with a leper elope
if a civet leapt out of a tree?
         You doubt it? Read Thomas and see.
 
Would an addax in Denmark gyrate
if an emu in Sweden bore freight?
Or an eland in Chile complain
if jerboas in Goa refrain?
         You doubt it? Read Thomas and see.
 
For really I thought ‘twas the onager taught
the aphid the tenor of Twi, and
that Gascony scops with Norwegians eloped
when Danes had lepers to tea.
         You doubt it? Read Thomas and see.

Insectica

The evil Black Widow hatched a wicked plan.

Using a willy worm for weather control,

she could crush the ants empire in her hand.

Just by sending flooding rain and freezing snow.



The Empire of the Ants heard of her plan,

and ordered Soldier B123 to arms.

He took a trained Beetle to be his shield man,

together they marched out past the aphid farms.



Soon they arrived at the Black Widows abode,

and she strummed her web hard, to cause them to flee.

The Soldier grabbed her, and on her back he rode,

while the trained Beetle set the willy worm free.



The Black Widow slipped through a hole in the wall.
Soldier and Beetle stand ready for the call.

GRASP THE NETTLE

Soup and greens,beer and tea
buttlerfly young just love me,
aphid trap and liquid feed
ladybird heaven,yes indeed!
I love phosphate & nitrate soil
such versatility reduces toil,
my leaves quicken the compost
all this for free,at no cost!
Okay,okay,yes I sting
but for you its win,win,win!
,
Tribute to the utrica dioica

Walmart

Walmart
I despise you

The flea on the dog
Aphid in the garden
Disease that turns into plague

Wasn't to pleased we did business with you
Was out of my control, 
Had to watch the news
He comes in my room
Look of disgust on his face
Units being returned
Okay, no big deal
They never reached the shelves
Gamblers disadvantage seems unreal
You reported units sold
Numbers don't add up
Some underpaid worker
Wasn't properly trained on your scanner

It's seeing loved ones hurt
16 hours days, 
Sorting through sheisty  distributors
No first grade teacher telling you how to read a contract
It's brutal
It's full of life
So when someone really screws you over
You're lungs clench, 
They bite
Hard to breathe
Hard to see 

Wedding coming up, 
Bills wont adjust
You've made it hard
Your business tactics
Make broke so abrupt

I try to keep my head high
Attitude optimistic
Trying to make a dent in the world
Hard when you're a role model for retailers
They'll be sure to follow suit

The real fear 
Companies don't learn
Brick n Mortar stores will bump up churn
Because the leader of the pack
Decided to cut prices and help
High price of Low Cost, 
Still cant fit my emotions into words. 

Big picture,
Big release for us
Small in comparison to others
Can't imagine the look on big distributors face
When they got their numbers, 
Want Walmart to burn in hell
Still wouldn't be even

GENOCIDE

GENOCIDE

''  I Don't like the glorification of violence
But , I love the true praise and worship to God,''
It is crazy how Dark Angel apotheosis glamour of Hollywood
But, maybe that is why his heart is very cold.
when he sees people , he looks at them like they're insects
but, it seems the aphid loves to be around him,
He sees thing totally different from me
I love what is good, and he loves what is bad
he would do what ever he can to reverse me 
to become like him, In my darken dreams 
Dark Angel and I had been all over the world
over 600 years ago, thing have changed 
But, not Dark Angels heart or his mind,
I would hear him say, "welcomed to the underground world."
I would see with my own eyes then,
the unfound fragile souls that has been abused
where  evil eyes are roaming about
enemies are always easy to find 
But, I'm determined to find some kinda mercy
for these people, they have been genocide ,
I had seen nothing is safe in this world of darkness
honest comes from the heart
People are always out judgement someone
Then judgement will be all mine 
I've got a question for you who reads what I bleed
Do you think even the worst person can change?
that everyone can be a good person if they just try?

lucidity

i was a child, pushing aphids into and popping them under my fingernails, letting their green corpses gather like dirt before sucking my fingertips clean.
my mother caught me and slapped my hands away from my mouth with a disgusted grunt. 
i felt embarassed but acted ashamed, continuing my compulsion in secret; then, in two decades' time, i became an aphid.

A SUNNY AUGUST DAY

I have just been confounded by nature on so many counts. I have been commenting on bumblebees not being seen in any quantity over most of the month, and today two species. Not abundant, but present, and pleasantly surprised I was. Another flying busybody not seen all summer, the common wasp, just the one, a welcomed visitor, a gardeners friend, many a plant it inadvertently defends in search of sustenance. Like insatiable caterpillars, and aphid or two, a job well done I’m telling you. A dragonfly, another hungry invertebrate diner. Then beautiful flitter, flutter, butterflies, green veined, large and small cabbage white, small tortoiseshell, speckled wood, the day for them very good. Hoverflies, or flower flies, depending on which side of the pond you're from, some beauts you will see, as you peruse my photography.

nature surprises whatever time of year unwrapped presents
Now for a blaze of colour, flowers, natures August glory. Indeed my horticultural favourites, what? Why did I not say passion? Well, you’ll see for indeed I had both the flower and the fruit, both preceded, yes, by how I feel passion. Beauty at my fingertips, a fuchsia, inverted, a view not often seen. So many colours, August has done itself proud, come visit if you crawl, fly, or slither, humans not allowed.
dusk… hark the frog croak swallows fill the air silent smooth newts

Garden Guard


Marigolds, the tint of molten sun,
Battled with the aphid horde, and won,
Routing them with pungent, putrid stink,
Beautiful to see…not smell…I think.

Animals are my prime favorites, how about you?

I like cute dogs, poofy dogs, goofy dogs,

Wiggly Giggly Barking dogs, quiet dogs too,

Smart dogs, silly dogs, crazy dogs, lazy dogs,

Large agressive guarding dogs,

Those are just a few,

I enjoy helpful dogs, playful dogs, bashful dogs,

Hyperactive athlete dogs,

How about you?

How about birds, do you like birds?

Fat birds, slender birds,

Small flutery skittish birds,

Exotic birds too?

Long legged birds, short legged birds,

pink birds, white birds,

250 pound birds (just the ostrich, mind you...)

Feathery birds, Arctic Birds, 

Tropic Birds, Desert Birds, 

Rodent-eating raptor birds,

wait, I'm not through,

I know, you like bugs!

Dull bugs, colorful bugs,

Icky Creepy crawly bugs,

Biting bugs too,

Flying bugs, walking bugs,

Running bugs, jumping bugs,

Maggot-Bearing Bullimic Bugs,

Those are just a few,

Stinky bugs, Slimy bugs,

Aphid eating ladybugs,

Luminescent Phosphorescent Glowing bugs too!

I love them all 

Big and small,

Animals are off the wall,

But don't trip

Just be hip,

Dont be givin' me no lip,

Animals are here for a purpose,

They have prodigiously covered the earths surface,

They are what we see what we learn, what we love, what we hate,

Some can be oh so meddlesome, but they have been helpful as of late,

Helping us to plow our fields, sniff out crooks, give us food,

Fulfill other necessities, so please let us not be rude,

Lets give these critters their credit due,

To animals everywhere, we love you!!

(You may say "no", but trust me, you do..)

Easterly

Bouquets of eastern starlings, raving. 
Reaching out, fledgling saving,
The garden sloth of heaven's hues    
Living in a bath of saffron dews.

Darkend the plough that snails follow
With troughs behind it tumbling hollow;
And up the steepend crag it crowns,
Margined off by aphid sundowns.

Violent garden of solar grapes,
some day we will barrel your shapes,
And your gentle filligree reigns retake-
Still cold before the Heavens's gate.

After death, mother's wake,
Finds her hatchling in the lake,
In the mud its last breath take.
Let these sail-white bones 
Forever sate
Mother earth's gentle wheat.
