Something about zombies, family, I don't know

he keeps dried heads in the cookie jar
she throws them out back when he's not home
after spring rain they put down roots
grow torsos, limbs
some up, some down, sideways
by mid simmer they start talkin'
this is why, he rants
I shrunk 'em in the first place
and now Thanksgiving with the fam
will have to be outside
cos I sure ain't lettin those things back in

On a more legit botanical note. I was told this morning that there are "dozens" of surprise lilies up in our yard. Alas, it is only 14. The drought is not been good for them.
