Moving the sprinkler

It’s time to move the sprinkler, since

I need to water every inch

Of thirsty yard. But here’s the woe:

I’ll need to time my move just so,

To pluck the sprinkler while its spray

With spurting force now tilts away.

But if I’m just a second late

A gushing drench will be my fate.

I race to beat its sweep, but then

This water hazard wins again.

My clothes are soaked! There’s nothing gained;

The neighbors, though, are entertained.

Don Munday
