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.

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