The Lawn

Pop Lit Fiction

Summer is upon us! Lawn season. In keeping with the season we have a story by writer/musician Jeff Schroeck called, appropriately, “The Lawn.”

We live increasingly in a society about regulation, order, and conformity. Do this! Don’t do that. Follow the rules. Please comply. Aaarrggh! “The Lawn” is a metaphor for that conformity– presenting a situation with which many of us can identify.

I looked over my own copy of the agreement. They had no authority over my property but made sure that it was unpleasant for me to have disagreed with them.
