Red Coleus Cup

Now red coleus cup is the best receptacle
To start coleus for garden fairs and festivals
And you sir do not have a pair of tes------
If you prefer growing coleus in ceramic vestabowls

Hey red coleus cup is cheap and disposable
In fourteen years they are decomposable
And unlike my home they are not foreclosable
Freddie Mac can kiss my a--, woo!
Red coleus cup, I fill you with dirt
Let's have a garden party, 
I love you red coleus cup, I lift you up,
 As I go on my evening #gardenwalk

Now I've seen you in blue and I've seen you in yellow
But only you red will do for this fellow
Cause you are the Abbott into my Costello
And you are the Fruit to my Loom

Red coleus cup, you're more than just plastic
More than amazing, you're more than fantastic
And believe me that I'm not the least bit sarcastic
When I look at you and say:

"Red coleus cup, you're not just a cup
 (No, no, God no)
You're my friend, yea (Lifelong)
Thank you for being my #gardenchat friend"

Two Faced Scarecrow

All summer the Two Faced Scarecrow
alone together beneath the driving rain;
South wind blows front and back
And blows scorched summer again; 
 Midnight 'neath a maze of stars
flames with glittering rime,
smiles to the south;
scowls to the north
 Across the garden
Of sun-begotten grain,
Two Faced Scarecrow watches
for the harvest once again.
