Leave it alone, and it will grow
All by itself, don't you know.
Nature doesn't need us folk
With our garden forks to fuss and poke.
It's been around a lot longer than we,
And will probably outlast our brief, sad spree.
Sure, plants use animals. Birds, mammals, bees
Can fit right into their strategies.
That's why flowers smell good, and fruits have taste
That make you eat and excrete the waste
And plant the seeds somewheres else. They're clever,
Those plants, and they'll probably live forever.
So don't get so full of yourself. Your spade
Is just a tool of the plant world's trade.
