Dazzle me, little sun of the grass!
And spin me, tiny time machine!
(Tick-tock, sun clock, thistle & dock.)
Now no longer known as
Dent-de-Lion, Lion’s Tooth or Windblow,
  (Tick-tock, sun clock, nettle & dock.)
Evening Glow, Milkwitch or Parachute, so
Let new names take root, thrive and grow,
  (Tick-tock, sun clock, rattle & dock.)
I would make you some, such as
  Bane of Lawn Perfectionists
Or Fallen Star of the Football Pitch,
  or Scatterseed, but
Never would I call you only, merely, simply weed.’
(Tick-tock, sun clock, clover & dock.)
