Spray gun fully loaded, quick-fire
shots, aimed with precision
quell uprisings between flagstones.
Practised cut and thrust with sharpened hoe
weeds out renegades lying low
amongst regiments of greens.
Secateurs, quick-drawn from hip pouch
rid roses of dead wood;
no risks taken in bush warfare.
Kit inspection passed,
spotless tackle lines the shed wall, ready
for the next assault.
