Life on the Sedge

Life-is     en-cou-raged   in a garden
It's our    ardent attempt

To help the life force, with
Our gentle care and shoveling strength

So why oh why oh why would I, try- to start a fight
Because, little brother- The sedge has got to die

Nature is gentle, but step out of line, she'll cut you twice
and for grass to rule over our food, it just isn't nice

The sedges started the war- see
In a few weeks they'll spread some more- seeds 
but they underestimate the skill- of my hori-hori 

So with this Japanese knife, I spent my day taking life

While my partner sat and planted beets, to make beds come alive
