ominous it crouches
head like a macho-wasp
rejigged to project
dragon-like flames
the moment it fires
into life

set to napalm
suburban grass
hanging baskets
garish borders
& terrify the indignant
gardener with a death-metal

blackened mayhem
as battalions of mowers
rise up against the pampered
the bland the anti-
nature uselessness of
the lawn
