- What Matters
As the garage door opens and the sunlight pours in
I trudge over to the lawnmower, oh such an evil,
But on my way I knock over a bin
And while I’m at it crush many a weevil.
Once the machine is out, I bring it to our lawn.
I start up the motor
And just at the break of dawn
I start to cover grass like water to a boater.
At first the going is easy
And somehow I stay in a good mood.
But after a while I start to get a little bit wheezy
And I start to brood.
As I finally finish the front, weed-whacking and all,
I remember that I still have to do the back,
And before I fall
I decide to cut like a maniac.
Swerving up and down our yard I go
Vowing not to be a quitter,
When all of a sudden I go, “Whoa!”
As I accidentally run over a little critter.
Finally, after hours of work I’m done,
So I put the dreaded machine back,
And feeling like I’m number one,
I go and grab a snack.
After a quick shower,
I change and go to bed.
But little do I know I’ll be awake to go do our neighbor’s in an hour.
WHEN WILL THIS CYCLE EVER END?!?!
