In The Neighborhood
Mile Marker MCLXXXIV|
See my neighbor Jim,
in the back yard with wife Kim.
Having a nudist Bar-B-Q,
my God how horrible the view!
Read a letter from cousin Jake,
Crestfallen with fence's mistake.
Left his girlfriend today,
too much porn has turned him gay.
What has become of uncle John,
last seen mowing the lawn.
A pompous ass of vanity,
with very questionable sanity.
See my other neighbor Kate,
screaming at the garden gate.
Sometimes wonder why I live here,
surrounded by fruit loops sincere.
Walking their dogs Jack and Jill,
religious couple from Snob Hill.
Prim and proper ill refute,
pimp to his wife and prostitute.
never ceases to amaze me,
the many layers of stupidity.
Hiding behind convictions bear,
transparent masks that people wear!
