I've Got To Do Something About My Neighbor

I’ve Got To Do Something About My Neighbor

By Elton Camp

I’m watching the guy across the street
His wife, it appears, he often does beat

And it wouldn’t at all be a surprise
If, if asked, he will deny it with lies

In the case of a man that low & mean,
I feel morally obligated to intervene

I’m going down there, gun in hand,
“Quit doing that stuff,” I’ll demand

Though last time I got into a family spat
All of them showed contempt for doing that

Even the wife that I was trying to protect
Joined with her mate and I was decked

But this time, it won’t turn out that way
So I’m going to take action without delay

There is no way I can allow this to pass
For I think he’s also using poison gas

    Minding one's own business seems a difficult lesson for some to learn. Thanks for reading and taking time to comment. Elton
