After the Poisoning Stopped

After The Poisoning Stopped

After the poisoning stopped,
The flowers flooded back,
Up sterile verges, down barren lanes.
Green leaf shoots,
Reached up from roots
And little girls made daisy chains.

By Dermy McNally

(If ever tempted to use weedkiller just remember that there is no such thing as a weed, just plants in the wrong place..)
