Grow your own

They rented a local allotment,

veg was the thing they would grow

A tenner a year, what a bargain,

so they purchased a spade and a hoe

Potatoes and carrots and parsnips,

onions and garlic and leeks

Digging and planting and hoeing,

they were at it for quite a few weeks

Then along came the rabbits and foxes,

a badger a deer and some thieves

All that was left in the morning,

was a slug on some partly chewed leaves!

So they sold all the tools to a neighbour,

handed back keys to the shed

Went to their local veg market

and purchased their produce instead…
