The Lawn Mower

Mowing lawns
to compliment
the white picket fence
who guard the front yard
illuminated by the rustic fashioned
light
and beyond the front door
lies a plasma screen
entertaining the pajama clad family
with the best
modern cable has to offer

Reality television
displaying dysfunctional lives
so the normal
can feel less insane
then catching a quick laugh
from a sitcom
and in-between
comes the cravings
for candy bars
and fast food dining
sometimes discounts and deals
from materials that will blow your mind

During all this
simple
modern living
we tell everyone of the boring thoughts
that inspire us
through social networking
lighting up
our desk
and lap
tops

And in the darkness of night
the last one awake
seeks out desire
in the LCD
plasma screen
world
of pornography

This is the lifestyle
of the family
with the well kept
lawn
