It’s hard

It’s hard to dig the sodden sod
by the light of a sodium flare,
with the whole of Sodom looking on
to make sure you take reasonable care.

It’s hard to dig the sodden sod
in Sodom’s Sodality’s garden
when the sodding spade your using
you fixed with glue that won’t harden.

It’s hard to dig the sodden sod
when hard to see what you’re doing
and the spade is weak, a real antique –
Sod’s Law will be your undoing!
