Your neighbour’s garden is his pride.
Carefully chosen plants adorn
beds and borders at the side.
Hedges are precisely shorn.
But, alas, your garden sprouts
weeds and thistles with their bloom.
And your angry neighbour shouts
“Cut them down! Don’t let them loom!”
Neighbouring gardens challenge peace.
Every plant can cause a fight.
Some evidently never cease
to vex the neighbour and his plight.
