Rescue this Fug Yard!

Lis and Kip need our help! They are entering a yard makeover contest and need something snappy (in 40 words or less) to win the contest and save Maddie from a blighted childhood playing in this backyard (either they win, or that poor girl is going to have to wear a helmet whenever she's out back to avoid brain damage when she bonks into the concrete wall).

Here's what I came up with:

Here in Seatac
the grass is totally whack.
Our lawn is so fug,
An astroturf rug
Is our desperate plan of attack.

Plastic ends our woe
But gives us a case of turftoe.
Help us out,
make something sprout
We need some green to grow.
It's got possibilities, but needs some fine tuning and it's 5 words too long. Help!!!

wow, I'm so impressed - and you could easily shorten it by deleting a few words (ie make the line "gives us turftoe" instead of the longer one you have)!!! you are so smart, i would never have come up with something like that! :)

well thank you doodlebug! Now it had better win!

Meg said...

Wow, I'm really impressed. Maybe I'll steal this and enter The Prentice's.

The Prentice's could never win with their pretty deck!
