They were here,
They were there
They were everywhere,
They have woken up me in the mornings
Warned me of any visitors arrival,
Strewn everything around and spoilt my tidy garden,
They were an asset sometimes
Nuisance too at times,
There are not here, there or anywhere else,
When I needed them most.
No need to wake me up
To warn me of any visitors’ arrival,
Come back again and even untidy my garden,
But just take my humble offerings,
At least on Saturday mornings.
