Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: brutal, clammy and dense.
First Law of Gardening
A man with remarkable hair,
Ran for president, just for a dare.
While apparently dense,
In the cognitive sense,
His success made liberals despair.
Candidates take a risk when they stand—
No questions, it seems, will be banned:
Could appendages, clammy,
Beneath his pajammy,
Reflect the size of his hands?
While media and pundits all groan,
There’s a truism garden’s have known:
While it seems to be brutal,
The only seeds that will fruit’ll
Be the ones that you’ve previously sown.
