There was girl I used to know,whose pet ambition was to grow,within her tiny garden plot the plants that no one else had got. She had no time for common stuff that other folk thought good enough;She searched the papers through & through for things exotic, strange & new. One night she heard a neighbour say that someone, just across the way, had got PLEBITIS ‘twas a word of which she hadn’t even heard. PHLEBITIS! That was something new! Now was it red or was it blue? The only plant she hadn’t got— She ordered it upon the spot.
