Dandy Lion Crimes Haiku (Ain’t Freedom Grand)



They hate yellow deeply
with their Scotts toxic bags
set to make dull lawnminds all exactly the same

  1. Wonderful. I think the little bug is a frog hopper, but not 100percent on that.


  2. I’m with you on this one. I’ve nothing against the European dandelion at all — it is a pretty thing, and I made innumerable bouquets for my mother from them when I was a kid. But today? I love our native Texas dandelion, and “perfect” lawns bore me to tears. Wonderful haiku, and a nice smile for a rainy (!) morning.


  3. Interesting, Dandy Lion never occurred to me. I always think Dan de Lion as if it’s French. Dan de Lion is Dan of the Lion if I remember my school days French correctly.


  4. Mother Nature did not intend dandelions to be snuffed out by poison, but instead to brighten the blah, not-quite-colorful-yet Spring landscape.
