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.
