Monday's Child #48 - Garden Clowning

Illusration: by Vincent Mathy

All the garden vegetables
Gathered all around
Wondering what the commotion is
Up there off the ground

It seems to be a peacock
Yet no that can’t be right
It looks like Miss Asparagus
Tendrils are quite the sight

She’s branched out all the leaves
A colorful palate for all to see
Now she’s jumping up and down
Floats like a balloon would be

She’s causing quite the stir
The other’s all are frowning
All this attention can’t be good
Vegetables should not be clowning
