The Grass Stain Is Greener On the Other Guy's Pants

Here's what I think about mowing the lawn:
It's one big grass-growing marathon.
I've heard it's healthy for grass to grow
And go to seed before you mow.
No truth to that, that I can see;
But hey, why fight it?  It works for me.
In summary (or springary), my philosophy is:
"Be the very last guy on the block to mow his."
And if one of my neighbors should seek to deny me,
All I can say to him is, just try me.
