Lawn Mowing Wars

by Regina

The first shoots of green grass are growing now,
dandelions and weeds, vex me mightily,
I probably can mow next weekend......
was about to watch the game.....
when neighbor cranking up his mower
struck panic in my heart.

Oh no! his lawn is not going to look
better than mine!
Lawn mowing war, it starts every spring,
neighbor vs. neighbor, it's an American thing,
I jog to the shed, yank out my dilapidated
push mower, it struggles to start,
as Eddie across the street smugly rides his
brand new, shiny John Deere,
that sure as hell makes me glower!!

Lawn mowing war, it starts every spring,
neighbor vs. neighbor, it's an American thing.

Haha, this is a good one Regina. We have someone to cut the grass here now. I have memories of struggling with lawn mowers over the years and trying to keep weeds out when our neighbours had beautiful lawns! Best of luck in this contest!
