I beg your pardon

you don’t bring me flowers

no more no more

I heard it through the grapevine

life is a bed of roses, yet found

every rose has its thorn,

more of a thorn in my side

I am willing to reckon with.

besides, supermarket flowers

sweeter than a kiss from a rose.

I never promised you a rose garden

and prefer dandelion fluff

blowin’ in the wind

while on the strawberry swing

than work another

hard days night

in the Octopus’s Garden

    1. After researching, it was sung by a few artists, however, I believe Lynn Anderson is most known for it. I changed it to Lynn Anerson. Thanks for the heads up.

  1. Lovely, sweet, and a touch of whimsy. Very well orchestrated, Eugi. 💕👏👏👏
    By the way, I clicked on the link to where you got the prompt, and it didn’t work.

      1. No, it was yesterday’s post, I Beg Your Pardon. There is a link for “Earthly Comforts Composting Prompt Ingredients—Once a Week Prompt” at the bottom, curious, I clicked on in and got—Oops! That page can’t be found.

  2. Wait, that was my comment above, the wordpress button to log in is blocked by the prompt to log in, not just on your site it seems. – Artie
