I hope the Prime Minister reads that. Gardening came a long time before politics. The Bible sites the Garden of Eden as where human life first began. You cannot get more recommendation than that. Hee is another of my poems with a gardening theme.
Out in the Cold.
As you would for a rare mountain plant,
You put me in the Alpine House;
Studied my history, my habitat,
My preferences for food and drink.
Seeing that I was thriving,
You moved me to the rock garden
There I put down roots
And did what alpines love to do,
And bred seven new rarities for you.
Now you are gone,
I struggle in the neglected garden
Longing to be back in the Alpine House.
Yet adapted enough
To survive on the mountain.
