My next door neighbor
is a busybody
butting into your life
whether you like it or not...
He talks without speaking
hears without listening
I am not one for long walks
unless he were to take one off a short pier...
Perhaps he lives
in a most shallow place
addicted to gossip
especially if it is about you..
He is a nosy busybody
making things worse than they really are
one of those infectious people
who does research on the cause...
I have always promised myself
never to get involved as such
doing reading about this so called disease
maybe by talking about him I have become infected...
