DON’T WALK ON THE GRASS
The sign said to me
In uppercase it was uppity
To make sure I would see

A field of greenness
Just waiting for shoes
But here was a sign
With opposite views

Do they make signs for the fish:
“DON’T SWIM IN THE SEA”

Or for the birds:
“DON’T FLY IN THE SKY”

Or for the squirrels:
“DON’T CLIMB ON THE TREE”

No they do not, they get to be free

I look at the sign sadly
And as I turn to the street
I hear my feet sigh
As they hit the concrete.
