I think we need to mow again.

I’ll do it just before the rain.

Everything’s growing lickety split:

Soon there’ll  be  no place to sit

I’ll trim it too, to look the same.



Before you speak, let me explain:

To me the work is a happy game,

So  rest you here for a bit

I  will do it quick to keep me fit.

And no, I really won’t complain.
