Dandy lions disgraced his pristine surface
manicured to a perfect green velvet.
A miraculous horticultural achievement
considering the soil conditions…
that’s what chemical fertilizers create;
that was the sole purpose for his weekends –
lawn care – his growing pride.
Glaring, growling, clinching teeth…
escaped seeds from blighted excuses -
environmental friendly pesticide free zones.
Ex-lawns surrounded his property…
wastelands filled with mulched native shrubs,
succulents and drought resistant perennials.
His perfect lawn invaded with yellow blots.
Pumping his sprayer, he waited for nightfall.
The cul-de-sac would be dandelion free….
