There will always be weeds

The dandelions seem to be worse than usual this year
But there are always dandelions
There are certainly always dandelions on my lawn
Which may be why my neighbor Marjorie
Offered to let me use her dandelion removal gizmo
It was an attachment for a power drill that she bought on QVC
She had that and an aggressive form of cancer
The last time I saw her she was being loaded into an ambulance
She seemed alert and aware and
She looked right at me
Neither of us said a word
So I don’t know what she was thinking about
But I was thinking about dandelions
Which is funny
Because every time I see dandelions now I think of Marge
I thought of her a lot this year
