if i kill the weeds where they live
deep in the crevasses and chasms of random fortune
then i would deprive myself of the pleasure
of whacking them into a fine powder
to mix in the atmospheric flux and folly
the joy of the robin that goes be-boppin along
the whippoorwill and the swizzle-stick
the avian wonder that used to be dinosaurs
until they realized that reptilian isn't all that
come, feast upon my green smorgasbord
be fruitful and excrete with gusto

I am redoing my genome.
I have a glass of Roundup with my Wheaties™ every morning.

I'm just another wacky weed whacker in Texas
where the grass is always greener thanks to:
Better living through chemistry
the invisible hand of the market place that redecorates our genome

oh well another day another ramble
please pardon the ramble pardner
thank you

There I go editorializing another poet got dam me :oops:
