THAT HUMMING-GRINDING

THAT HUMMING-GRINDING

(Tune of THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

We heard that frequent grinding,

Tree choppers from Outside.

Making veggie mincemeat

Of the bushes on the side…

They were going to finish yesterday

But have still more to do,

For mulch and landfills too!

Oh that humming-grinding-roaring

Outside won’t let me sleep,

It’ll be agoing all day

With schedules to keep…

Our park-like grounds will open up

To sun and winter winds,

Removing all that dead wood

Is how new growth begins!
