The Hotel

I saw a sign at Sainsbury’s
Pointing to a new hotel
Abreast some stilts stuck in the ground
For somewhere safe to dwell

Where a million little windowpanes
In honey combed array
Said ‘welcome to our hotel
Please enjoy your stay.’

I thought I’ll do my shopping
Then book in there to rest
For a night of being spoilt
Would render me less stressed

So, with champagne in hand and chocolates
I headed to book in
Complete with my favourite book in tow
And can of rhubarb gin

But when I saw the front of house
I had a change of mind
For he was garbed in bright yellow
With black stripes around him lined!

And with a sting in tail, he said
“Buzz off! Get Lost! Farewell!
For you cannot stay here human!
This is a bee hotel”

Bindweed 🐝

The battle of the bindweed
A creepy damned affair
As under fence and through crevice
The stuff is everywhere
A wrapping round the plant stems
A stranglehold that thwarts
Growth and health and thriving
As it chokes and kills in short!

And though troublesome in plenty
There’s one good thing it does
For its blooms produce a pollen
For moth larvae and bees that buzz
And so for gardener the bindweed battle
May be a constant fight
Yet a battle won on one front
May be a war lost in hindsight!
