A short sighted seed
From a near sighted weed
Was losing his sight by the hour
Then a sudden idea
Hit him right in the ear
And he knocked himself out on a flower!
He would rummage the greenhouse
The sun-house, the outhouse
And eat all the carrots he found.
He ate carrots galore
'Till there weren't any more
And he sprouted himself off the ground!
He ate and he ate
And it got very late
And the sun went to bed far away
He walked out to the park.
But in spite of the dark
The young seed could see clear as day!
And when he had grown
He had seeds of his own
(Although several were eaten by parrots)
Through the night he would sprout
And all night he would shout
"I can seed in the dark 'cos of carrots!"
