Claws for Paws


Can’t wait to get into the garden,

Not normally one of my loves.

You see, I have lately been given

A pair of posh gardening gloves.

They’re ones that aren’t cheapy or thinny

Or the usual sort for outdoors.

These are amazing and special,

Their tips have been turned into claws.

Now I can hoe, plant and scrabble

Directly in soil.  What delight!

Nails will stay long and unsullied,

No stumps or split endings in sight.

The downside of this neat invention,

A drawback to lower best scores,

Is while you’re communing with nature

You risk ruining knees on all fours.
