When I get on the lawn tractor
I am transformed into the
amusement parks Tilt-A-Whirl;
moving in light circular curves,
turning and turning, my body isI
slammed inwards as I fight the
forces all around me.
When I get on the lawn tractor,
I am transformed to the Indy 500
It’s just a 5.000′ straight track and me;
clutch in, fifth gear, and I’m off!
Going into a tight curve, let her out three
grassier turns later for one more lap.
When I get on the lawn tractor I am
transformed into the Ultimate Mowing Machine
Precision timing, neat straight away, deftly
formed corners, grass churned beneath
my powerful blades
fall into the trailer behind.
Boy! I love this chore.
