Smiling is Infectious
by Spike Millgan

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner,
and someone saw my grin,
When he smiled I realized,
I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized it's worth,
A single smile, just like mine,
could travel round the Earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin.
don't leave it undetected,
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the World infected!

An awful verse with no title
and no author

Gardening Australia!
what a source of inspiration,
A beacon in the darkness,
of a Covid-stricken nation.

I watch with fascination,
their fastidious garden grooming,
Mine's just a little overgrown,
it needs some basic pruning.

I recall those little seedlings,
that I bought years ago,
With foliage soft and greyish green,
some with a purplish glow.

Those pretty little seedlings,
in the nursery I had found,
Have grown like bloody blackberries,
and cloned themselves around.

There's hardly any space at all,
no room to swing a cat,
No chance of social distancing,
or anything like that.

So I ventured out there bravely,
armed with nothing more,
Than my Massey-Fergie tractor,
and my Husqrvana saw.

And I toiled on through the weekend,
mission fixed and visage stern,
I grubbed the buggers out of there,
and stacked them up to burn.

And I'm sure in Cootamundra,
folks have everything they need,
They can keep their bloody wattle though,
it's nothing but a weed.
