Two Ways to Eradicate Weeds


 (Weed: a plant held to have no value.)

If grass is what you want
Then eradicate the weed.
Sharp things, pointed things
and poison's what you need.
Vigorously, vigilantly
set your poke and spray
until you've wilted all
that alien growth away.

Yet here's Creeping Charlie,
Dandelion, Plantain,
Fragrance, form and color
that's so easy to maintain.
Why would you work so hard
To chase them from your lawn?
Value these plants -- and poof,
All your weeds are gone.
