If John Betjeman were a gardener...

Come friendly frosts and freeze those slugs!
Don’t cryogenically save mollusc thugs.
They’re top of the list of pestilent bugs.
Freeze over, kill!
Come, frost, and freeze to gristly blobs
Those devouring, trail-sliming, porkfattish yobs.
Wrecked leaves, wrecked stems, wrecked flowers, wrecked plants,
Wrecked harvest, wrecked plans.
