Painting by Terry Redlin‘I’ll Never Own a Leaf Blower’ by Jack Suss The Society August 25, 2019 Culture, Humor, Poetry 1 Comment I’ll never own a leaf blower, I’ll never rake with noise, Or drive away God’s tiny mole By blasting at his tunnel hole. I’ll never own a leaf blower, I’ll never scream my task, Or trample over village green, With monster-wicked shit machine. I’ll never own a leaf blower, I’ll never ramble like a jackass, Or toss around some screeking wand With “hi-tech” sneer o’er walk and lawn. I’ll never own a leaf blower, I’ll never drown out little birds, Or shirk a weary autumn ritual By flaunting such an obscene tool. I’ll never own a leaf blower, I’ll never roar at leaves, But I’ll admit I own a loud lawn mower That I keep beside my big snow blower.

Anderson August 25, 2019 Heh-heh. Now, if we can just do something about those giant leaf blowers that landscrapers use, then we’ll have accomplished something.
