little something.

Clydetoe tomatoes
round the bush
Clyde picks and goes
on to the squash
and pepper patch
melons come soon
and those he'll smack

He grabs his spade
and squats on his knees
he digs up the earth
and does as pleases

but those Clydetoe tomatoes
are the best we have
and the boy's pretty good
like his mom and dad

the tomatoes are toys
and on this we'll agree
that Clyde rules the garden
he's the emperor, indeed.
