“They Say Only The South Wind Flattens The Grass”
I’ve been living here a while now, but
I’ve never heard anyone say it and
I have no idea whether it’s true or not
so I guess I shouldn’t say it, either.
Only my Uncle Whacky says they say it
(or people say that’s what he says)
but how the hell would he know?
And who the hell would listen to him?
He’s always lived right here
where there’s almost no grass
and never a southern breeze.
No wonder they call him “Whacky”.
