Dream and reality

Hi everyone,

This may not be the yard you've seen,
Pictured in a magazine,
To make your neighbors' envy green,
Every blade of grass in place,
The classic lawn of style and grace,
To put a smile on every face

This may not be what you had planned,
Thick and lush across your land,
Each emerald shoot a perfect strand,
But this is what you got alas,
Everything except for class.
Everything except for grass.
