Grittle decided to plant a gold chain
In a crack in the concrete and spray it;
He knew it would grow, he had a green thumb,
And he wasn’t afraid to display it.
Humility had no claim on his heart,
For Grittle was good and he knew it;
Whatever it was he hankered to grow
Old Grittle made sure that he grew it.
But Trigger and Flicks, that duo from hell,
Decided they could not refrain
From thwarting the plans that Grittle had laid,
And so they dug up the gold chain.
When Gardener Grittle saw the gold swells
Of chain links laid bare to the sky,
He defied gravity, leaped twenty feet,
And sentenced the duo to die.
These days the gold chain continues to thrive
In the crack where Grittle did sow it;
He relishes seeing it gleam at night.
The chain? Well, it seems to know it!
