OMG! Its been a nightmare finding time to write anything this month!
Finally I started this one in the bath last night (my usual routine of bubbly candlelit bath helped the lyrics to appear) and just completed now. The tune is being a bit nebulous so nothing yet for music.
I like it - it combines my love of gardening and my love of creepy things
My garden grows such pretty flowers
I spend my days and idle hours
Planting seeds and digging mud
Made fertile soil with sweat and blood
Mary, Mary, truly scary
What do you plant at night?
Fingers and toes and teeth and bones
My garden of dark delight
Hanged man orchids. Skull-like seeds
They’re just what my garden needs
Nightshade, poppies, toxic -sweet
Tendrils snare unwary feet
Dead men’s fingers claw the ground,
Until the Devil’s Claw is found
My voodoo lily smells of death
Walk on by and hold your breath.
