    My garden only grows weeds. Weeds!
    my garden grows weeds
    Somehow we gotta eat, baby.
    Somehow we need to eat.
    The ground is baked hard and dry.
    The ground baked dry.

    Out at pasture our cattle died.
    Our greasy swine is long fried.
    The goat got caught by the thrasher.
    All our chickens passed last year.
    It's just you and I out here now my dear.
    Nothing left for us but fear.

    Cuz my garden only grows weeds. WEEDS!!
    My garden grows only weeds.
    Babe, my garden grows weeds. Weeds..
    and somehow we gotta eat.
    It's just you and I out here so quick..
    Tell me you'll make it. I am sick.

      I really enjoyed a comical tone, the piece speaks for itself I think. I agree with jaycee about the degree of desperation. I enjoyed it immensely.

      Michael,
    How you managed to use this sing song refrain to create a tone of desperation is brilliant. It feels a bit like Lady Macbeth's "Spots! Spots! Be gone, damned spots!" a desparate bit of madness. This piece feels like that only despair at a long chain of disasters. No negatives in the form. You knew what you were doing. Its good to see a post from you.
