I did the garden

Today I did the gardening a different way;
I used a knife and fork to cut down the trees,
and a wooden spoon to support my knees.
I cleaned out the hive for the bumblebees.
I pulled out the weeds with a set of pearl beeds,
then, whilst on my head, I planted more seeds.

I trimmed down the hedge with next door’s dog,
then brushed up the leaves with an old wooden log.
I turned over the soil with a roll of tin foil,
then switched on the kettle and watched it boil.
I had a nice cup of tea whilst sat up a tree.

I told you I did the gardening a different way, I told you so,
I told you today.
