(A poem for the Occasion)
I took direction from the Universe and the Internet
Clicked here and there and found a team to join
and just like the new President
I spent my morning in service
Making the world a better place,
removing one creeping root at a time.
Call me a radical. I went to the root of the problem
Foreign terrorists of the plant variety.
Prying , pulling and yanking at
Ivy roots strangling tender native plants,
their tentacles wrapped around small trees
robbing them of their constitutional rights.
