A Lawnmower's Dilemma

A Lawnmower's Dilemma

A Poem by Jason A. Skilton
"

--[[ Lawnmowers; a force of nature. ]]--

"
Oh, how it wished to mow the lawn,
The grass was tall. It'd been so long.

But alas, my friends, its time had passed,
The lawnmower's journey could never last.

The valiant lawnmower fought hard to win,
But victory and the lawnmower were never akin.

The battle of blades was prolonged indeed,
Perpetual even, if not for me.

I became tired and hungry, so I threw in the towel,
Only to see the lawnmower stare with a scowl.

I shrugged it off, and went on with my day,
Little did I know about the lawnmower's decay.

Interesting metaphor. The layers of meaning within this are well done. The reader seems drawn to the broken lawnmower, as its broken but eager state is all to familiar to what we often find ourselves in. Well done, and keep writing.
