Vanity - Poem by Smoky Hoss

cut the grass
mow, mow -
stop natures advance
mow, mow -
mark your claim
mow, mow -
your personal domain
mow, mow -
vanities foolish fare
mow, mow -
worthless worldly care
mow, mow -
when you're gone
mow, mow -
the grass grows long.
no mow, no more -

    And another day we do it again…till one day our life will end. Go mow, mow Smoky.

    Amazing that it is such an annoying problem for all. But we can only do our best to manage while we're here and just keep on mowing. Thanks Smoky for this truly interesting and enjoyable write.

    The lowly grass. Unconquered by man. Sets you to thinking. Which is the higher life form. (Report) Reply
