When Zucchini Take Over The Garden

Zucchini Poetry

It was an an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny
silver striped green zucchini.
While we slumbered, what went wrong?
Overnight it's two feet long!

-----------------------

The giant, flesh-eating zucchini,
or so my children say,
is on the loose in the garden.
They're not going back today.

What's more, they swear they'll never,
eat it ever again any more.
You never can tell the trouble you're in
when you let it in the door.

In case you did not know, this auspicious occasion falls on August 8th every year.

Under light of full moon, either stark naked or wearing full army camouflage, carrying a machete or any garden implement, run a muck in your zucchini patch, cutting and slashing. Be sure to thank Mother Nature for her bounty before and after this cathartic experience.
