Oh, weed wild and wicked, out of control!

Loosestrife again is taking its toll.

It pushes and shoves among cattails and reeds.

Prolific as lemmings, with millions of seeds,

It soon overruns huge swatches of swamp,

And fringes the rivers with plush purple pomp.

Oh, weed wild and wicked, in every nook

What glorious purple! How gorgeous you look!
