    It's not just ponies that trouble my flowers, but those pesky little pests called Woozleworms....

    Woozleworms

    The Woozleworms are on the flowers
    Sat chewing at the petals
    And nibbling through the tender stalks
    With teeth as tough as metal


    But Gaffer Gamgee worried not
    He knew to save his plants
    With just the thing that worms all feared
    Some little biting ants!


    Although the ants were really small
    They gathered in large numbers
    And bit and nipped the Woozleworms
    To feed on them for supper


    And so the biting ants were loosed
    To feast upon their prey
    But where the Woozleworms once crawled
    The ants were here to stay


    These ants were rulers of the plants
    And guarded with their bite
    Once more the Gaffer hatched a plan
    And wasps were in his sight


    For wasps like eating little bugs
    And found the ants a treat
    So set amongst the worried ants
    The wasps had much to eat


    Although the ants were soon all gone
    The wasps could still be found
    They menaced all the garden plot
    And stung all folk around


    So Gaffer was not yet deterred
    He knew a type of flower
    Whose pungent scent of smelly socks
    The wasps were overpowered


    But now remained the smelly plants
    Whose putrid odour choked
    It made the poor old Gaffer sick
    Along with passing folk


    But reading books on gardening
    The Gaffer soon would learn
    The way to rid these stinky plants?
    Releasing Woozleworms!


    Too late old Gaffer realised
    The flaw within his plan
    For now with all these Woozleworms
    He was back where he began


    But Gaffer Gamgee worried not
    He knew to save his plants
    With just the thing that worms all feared
    Some little biting ants....
