WEEDS ON THE LAWN (Poem #269)

Weeds were growing out on the lawn.
No matter what I did they were never gone.
I’d tug and I’d pull,
But the lawn was still full,
Whether I used patience or brawn.

you have patience to avail brute force tears it all down the weed and lawn. whatever you have a lawn…lol…just sip some tea under a shady tree and wait for the weeds they’ll be back.  Good writing

You are right. If you don't get the roots, the weed will be right back. Thanks for review.

I, too..., have been left pondering over the daunting task, and never ending struggle, to rid my lawn of weeds. However, I never thought to express my frustration with a poem. ;)

The rhyme scheme of 1,1--2,2--1 is enjoyable.  Its nice to turn something frustrating into something uplifting.,

ask Monsanto they have killed all the weeds in the world as well as the corn

Thank you for your comments. I grew up not using poisons. We even picked the bugs off our garden vegetables and put them into cans of kerosene.
