I’ve been on the mycorrhizae
With Mrs Barley, 2 fields over.
You know her, darling she’s the one
Who’s always overrun with clover.
And well, my love, you’ll never guess
She’s only gone and got infested
With aphids! Well, I know! The stress!
It goes to show, should have invested
Time in her defenses, really –
Can’t afford to get caught out.
So, thought I’d pass the news on, deary:
That’s what being a friend’s about!
