Gone With the Wind

The lawn left on a sunny day
as did the Assoc-controlled tree.
The City-owned tree will continue to threaten lives.
Part of our nice, clean dirt was hauled away;
it found a new home.
The wind took a few buckets of dry dirt.
In the meantime, the mutt enjoys
digging up dirt; City’s dirt,
and chewing on stinky roots
from City and Association’s trees.
If the City takes its time with the dumpster,
the rest of the dirt will be gone with the wind
because it’s blowing buckets.
