A savage garden
of thorns and broken bottles
Lies behind the fence.

Stalks of dead grass,
scattered as a drunkard’s thoughts,
shatter in the wind.

Vines reach for the sky
but stunted, they fall short and
limply hang down.

Rotting rose petals
are strewn across the path,
red as old blood.

Would that I had
the time or the patience
to transform this place.

Favorite Quote:
First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

...i can see the meaning behind this. i love these verses, they are very potent.
