SIR CLIFF RICHARD KILLS FLOWERS
Would you believe plants profuse of petal
Could be enlivened by Heavy Metal
Aiming for Primrose or the perfect Daff?
Plug in and riff out...to Black Sabbath.
"Smoke on the water" a song by Deep Purple
Encourages bloom in all that is herbal
Forget all that rot about fertiliser
Simply crank up your amplifier.
Those Pansies you're growing in need of a pep?
May I suggest "Black Dog" by Led Zep
The beefy drumming of John Bonham
Produces more plants with flowers on 'em.
Cast my eyes over baskets now hanging
I swear those fuchsia have started head-banging
Amazing phenomenom for plants to have yen
For ten minute guitar solo...by Iron Maiden.
Horticulturists beware, it's not all good news
Don't let Rod Stewart near Feverfews
Neil Diamond was tops with his soft pop
He influenced the fruit of the plant to drop off.
Heed all you gardeners with flower orchard
Ear muffs on violets...... it's Cliff Richard!
His droning tones causes blossom to fail
They'd rather die than listen to "Sir's" wail.
