High Maintenance

 

You thought you’d get yourself a pet,

one that was rather large;

the trouble would be the expense,

the work would be so hard.

You came up with an idea,

a creation you could see,

the fruit of all your labours,

well, you ended up with me.

 

I don’t need any feeding,

not in the normal sense;

but the bill you get for plant food,

it can be quite immense.

I don’t wake you in the night time

to open up that door,

and even when you’re gone for hours

I don’t mess up your floor.

 

But when it comes to exercise,

you were oh, so wrong,

for the time it takes to care for me

is really very long.

There’s chopping and there’s trimming,

removing all the dross;

the constant climbing ladders

just leads you to get cross.

 

You thought you’d found the easy answer

but now you’ve found it’s ‘no’,

taking care of your new ‘pet’

keeps you on the go.

A creature of high maintenance,

that’s just what I do be.

Am I worth the total cost?

You’ll have to wait and see.
