The name of the kid who asked my friend Dan this is lost to posterity, but I’ve answered anyway.

  •  

The gardens on faces

Aren’t planted with seeds

For some, they are flowers, 

For others, they’re weeds

So some people trim them,

And some people mow them,

And some people grow them 

And grow them and grow them.

Some gardens are messy,

All bushy and wild

And some are kept neat

And impeccably styled

Some people have gardens

They don’t really want

And some people wish

They could grow one, but can’t 

The gardens on faces

Aren’t planted with seeds

For some, they are flowers

For others, they’re weeds.
