Old Toms Cabbage...!!!

Old Tom once grew a Cabbage..the biggest you’ve ever seen…
the heart was good and solid…..the leaves …a perfect Green…
and you know the Cabbage that Tom grew would have measured 18" or more..
it ’Stood" all green and resplendant….right beside old Toms front door….

Now it was his Pride and his Treasure, and at the end of each day…
Old Tom would tenderly water it..and brush any dust specks away….
For in that Dry Arid Country where not a blade of grass could be seen
that Cabbage stood as a Monument…to where Old Tom had been…..

Old Tom gave me his Cabbage as a Special Birthday treat….
but I’m sorry to say it just rotted away, for Tomas cabbage I just couldn’t eat…

For Tom really had loved that Cabbage…..he’d cared for it just like a daughter,
and the Tribute to Toms ingenuity was……
Tom never had any fresh water……………………………………………………………………….
