The Unneeded Weed

I’m thrilled that my poem, “The Unneeded Weed,” made the Top Ten list for the Madrigal challenge on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog at Writer’s Digest! Very big smiles here!!

I am the dandelion crowding your lawn,
the one born to vanquish the growing of seed,
too full of conceit to respect any need.

I meet your rebukes with a flowering yawn
then paralyze yards with my lightning fast speed.
I am the dandelion crowding your lawn,
too full of conceit to respect any need.

I multiply swiftly, conclusion foregone.
My lust for destruction can never recede.
I live for the damage your pleas won’t impede.
I am the dandelion crowding your lawn,
the one born to vanquish the growing of seed,
too full of conceit to respect any need.
