Government Gardener

20130216-110036.jpg
A meme does not make you a warrior…
Style doesn’t make you an artist…
Why would I spend my time writing grants…
Just takes time from my garden…

A government grant, is not a garden nor a farm…
Political bullshit does nothing but cause harm…
They choose your plants, and regulate your trees…
Make sure they control your money and your fees…

So many great gardeners are imprisoned by funds…
Won’t touch a shovel without payment refunds…
This is not about glory, it’s not about your money…
How much do you pay bees for their sweet honey?..

Beware of the radicals in anything you do…
Eventually they move on, and leave the work for you…
They are never satisfied, and they never stay…
They will find the next thing, and swiftly move away…

You see radicals come and go, they follow trends…
They never stay long enough to make many friends…
They get so involved, they wear the trends out…
Take a tip from me, and make them get out…

Out of our way, out of sight, out of mind…
Look around you, abandoned projects you’ll find…
This stuff isn’t easy, but it’s a whole lot of fun…
The little trick to a garden is be the last one…
