Growers and Mowers
There are two groups I know
that have diverse opinions
The Pro-Growers and Pro-Mowers,
filled with marching battalions.
Pro-Growers picket lawnmower shops
holding pictures of new mown hay
They taunt and tease and traffic stops
to take in what they have to say,
"Grass is a natural product
and must be allowed to live
For that is God's code of conduct
and none of us escape that sieve."
Pro-Mowers want their grass
cut as low as the mower can,
No blade of grass will they let pass,
left uncut by the Scyther's hand.
"The right belongs to us, you see,
and ne'er will we let you forget,
This land is bathed in liberty,
so on we mow without regret."
When on the horns of a dilemma
it's best to overthrow the bull,
Each side has a half-truth lemma
that doesn't satisfy us at all.
I let my grass grow long's I want
and thus escape the grower's taunt,
And let mowers mow as they will
deprive their life of living's fill.
