Greener

I really like that grass, on that side of the fence
It's so luxurious, It looks compact and dense

I imagine me sitting, over there on my ass
Comfy and so cozy, that is my kind of grass

Mine is dissapointing, some may think it's obcene
It's not like my neighbors, his is completely green

Everything looks better, looking over that way
He works to improve it, by working night and day

So now I realize, My brown yard is okay
Green grass is too much work, I would much rather play

    This is exactly how I think! I hate yard work... especially when all you get out of it is grass or a few flowers (why not be more productive and plant food?). I really loved where you went with this... though my mind went to other things when you said "That is my kind of grass"... LOL!

    I'd much rather play in brown grass too ;) after all... I have a childish habit of ripping out grass if I sit on it when it's long and green haha. Great poem Richard :)

    My lawn is not that bad, definately not the most luxurious in the neighborhood. Considering how little time I spend on it, I'm pretty happy with it.
