The Plan (Part II)

by Jem Croucher

We built some raised borders

for the allotment to grow

laid them out in the garden

where they’re ready to go

Just one minor problem

they’ll not fit in the car

but the allotment is close

and not very far

And the frames they are light

so I’ll carry them there

one on each shoulder

not too much to bare

And in situ the plan

is for cardboard and compost

for a ‘no dig’ solution

which cuts down the work cost

Especially when all 

the produce has grown

and the fruit of our labours

by the plan we’ll have shown
