Yes, I love to garden. No, I don't own stock in Pfizer.

"Zilla" is what I call it
(For fear of blasphemy)
Though "god" should be its name

As a seedling it just didn't fit
For this pot it was just too wee
But it would grow all the same.

I gave it water, shade-a bit of sun
Watched to see how it fared
But there was a secret in the roots below

I'll tell you the trick I've done
A monthly dose of Viagra I dared
For it's but Aspirin coated with Miracle-Gro

Here, when someone is amazing you hear things like, "That boy is a sight!" Roger I'd say, "You are a sight!" Your poetry is too.
