The grass is greener

They say the grass is greener
Today, I would choose for the grass to stay brown
The morning comes, the ground wet with dew
The humid air sweats on everything

Sweat goes nowhere
Clothes dry slowly
The grass somehow stays green
The heat does not quite kill

The grass is lushest in the tomatoes
The hoe struggles to remove the sod
It is surviving,even when covered
Could grass be stronger than I?

The eyes see the place that should be a lawn
The ground is so very dark
Humus, but no grass is growing
How is the grass greener in the tomatoes?

Another day has come and gone
The grass is still greener in the vegetable garden
