A Summons From the Neighborhood Association

A Summons From the Neighborhood Association

By Elton Camp

Into Fred and Penny, the letter brought fear
The Neighborhood Association tells ‘em to appear

“To certain regulations you have agreed
To them, your addition seems to exceed.”

“These rules are for the benefit of all.
For removal and a fine, we may call.”

“With our decrees you must cooperate.
Towers and turrets we surely do hate.”

“So appear before us right away
If in this area you want to stay.”

“Your house we have a legal right to seize
And then do with it exactly as we please.”

“They have no taste at all,” said Fred
“I told you to check first,” Penny said

“Those dopes can’t tell me what to do.
With their silly rules I am through!”

Fred learned the term “binding agreement”
Still, of his defiance, refused to repent 

On them, vengeance was soon wrought
And their place became an empty lot
