Queen Anne's Lace



Honeysuckle, Queen Anne's lace
Sugar baby, angel face
Darling, sweetheart, klutzy grace
These are lover pothers

Dandelions, lawn crabgrass
Sudden touchback, bungled pass
Stupid comments, playful sass
These are common fodders

Nameless flowers, secret crops
Grubby silage, catkin hops
Horrid matters, tasteless glops
These are cut by swathers

Poison ivy, red sumac
Angry grimace, glum sad-sack
Migraine headaches, heart attack
These are pesky bothers

Ragweed pollens, rusty pots
Little bastards, infant tots
Spiteful methods, evil plots
These are sired by fathers

Categories, rich and rare
Sordid couplings, love affair
Blatant orgies, lustful stare
These are dicey rathers
