About a Pest

 

Dandelions

 

The bright yellow blooms

Are in all ways tenacious

Thriving on the effort

To eradicate existence.

 

As if a worthy flower

The rife seed pods

Propagate the growth

Across the wayward lawn.

 

Not being ambitious

Enough to employ

The expensive turf experts,

I attempt weeding alone.

 

The area once cleared

Of sunny blossoms

Is again recovered

By sturdy round heads.

 

Sometimes I think

What good purpose

Serves this constant battle?

The flowers are pretty, anyway.
