Robo Mow!

 

When it comes to summertime, there’s one thing that just grows fast,

No matter how I trim it, the cut, it never lasts.

 

The grass it just gets longer, each and every day,

I'll have to get the mower out or find a different way.

 

It seems I'm not the only one for look, there’s an invention --

if it wasn't so expensive it would have caused a real sensation.

 

A robot I can program, that I can put out and it will mow,

at least that’s what the package says, though my Mrs, she says no.

 

But it’s not her that does the mowing, I’m gonna give myself a break,

And any nagging she gives out I’m simply gonna take.

 

I remove all of the packaging, put it on the grass to mow

and then I press the button that says quite simply ‘GO’!

 

Nothing really happens, it just sits there being still,

The instructions on the internet, we’ve no computer – I feel ill!

 

My wife, well, she’ll be smirking, knowing she was right,

I can almost see her by the sink, laughing in delight.

 

I'll not give in so easily, no, I’ll try a different switch,

A light blinks on, it gives a beep -- then nothing – what a bitch!

 

I walk around and look at it, I’m searching for some clues,

But nothing’s saying ‘Press Me’ so there’s really not much use.

 

A robot in rebellion, that’s just what I thinking;

it’s beaten me down to defeat; how low can I be sinking?

 

It sits there by our little hedge, I’m sure I see it smirk

When I go and get the mower out and get on with the work!
