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.
