Burying Curly

Burying Curly

I always started out
With good intentions.
Of doing the job properly.
Measuring up by eye
I learned later not
To dig the plot
Too far away

A long drag over bumps and rash
Clumps in sodden ground was
Hard work
Everytime I would start out
Saying this time
It will be a proper plot
A neat rectangle
Spaded out the
Black Butter smooth sides
Four across
Six along …or maybe eight
A comfortable fit
Dig dig
Turf to the side
For finishing off
Later on
