NaPoWriMo 2016 Day Five

#NaPoWriMo 2016
Here is the daily prompt… Today, I challenge you to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities. 

heirloom party

the collective farm woman
pulled on her wide brim hat and
strolled out into her garden.
she had invited many,
california wonder, too–
her favorite among them all.
but the bloody old butcher,
that sly fellow, was strictly
forbidden from entering.
however, when the georgia
rattlesnake slithered his way,
uninvited, everyone
gasped in horror and surprise.
much to the rattler’s chagrin,
the bloody butcher swiftly
carved him up for tea time treats.
