She'd never been the nurturing type
and so it took a lot of faith for her to
drop the seeds into the ground,
cover them with dirt
and wait for them to grow.
She would often get into a fight
with the garden hose, throw it down
and stomp away when
it refused to acquiesce
to her demands to straighten up.
All she needed was someone
with a little patience
to tell her she would be
more successful if she'd only
turn the water off.
She didn't work well under pressure.
