poem: It's a Wonderful Community

flower petals in the air
said the visiting Frenchman  Pierre
your boy is getting busy with the clippers
a shorter stemmed rose is only fair
for the upwardly mobile  pair

roses clipped off folks with greenbacks
leads to vigorous hacky sack
big boys looking chipper
like an acrobat
over top of a net made of crack

petals falling into the muck
once a month a pastry truck
full of workers and hedge clippers
pulls out the folks who have been getting stuck
and removes them in the truck
