Dock Weed

One must respect the Dock
Weed, with it’s long tap root
And its fierce resistance
To my every effort
To remove and uproot
It, but it will perchance
Eventually give up.
Subject to a flame lance
Or, as one might have thought,
To weedkiller that I shot
Last year, but now I ought
To accept there is a chance
It’s tougher than I thought,
And, despite my onslaught,
Will persist, and in short,
Lead me a merry dance.
