Dark Brown Lawnmower Men

The dark brown lawnmower men are outside
mowing the hell out of the industrial lawn

and, get this, they came all the way from Mexico
to do it

seven of them share
a two bedroom apartment

you could say they live in luxury
go to Walmart together

take up the whole aisle
that's their way

but all too soon
the lawnmowers, the leaf blowers

the hot angry sun come calling
calling their names so sweetly

is so hard to resist
