A yard by any other name

This week at MadKanes the promt is either yards or gardens. I decided to do one on each however both mentioning yards, yet still different types of yards.

.
.....Limerick
..
Whoever invented the game
would likely think I were lame
since three hundred yards to me
is farther than I can see
and of course running it's sadly the same
.
.....Haiku
.
Trimming lawns and yards
has never been an option,
I have no mower

You couldn't pay me to run three hundred yards. But, I might be persuaded to walk it. Your haiku sounds like a weedy garden to me. Thanks for sharing such fun poems. Have a nice night, deathsweep.

The 50-yard dash would be pushing it for me. (heehee)

Your blog is clever.

I am partial to pennies. Here's my own favorite Penny:
