ALASKA LOVE SPAT

My neighbors are fighting again
Might be the whiskey or mayhaps  the gin
The dog barked all day and all night
(He likes to take sides when they fight)

My neighbors are slapping each other
I hear the voice of her brother
Trying to calm the mad pair
Now he’s flown out the window somewhere

My neighbors have hauled out their guns
‘Twas time to step up the fun
Their aims are blessedly high
Like comets they shoot up the sky

My neighbors have smashed their last dish
The silence has answered my wish
What’s the deal? They’re shaking the wall
The plaster has started to fall.

Dawn has just hit the sky
Babies have started to cry
But the neighbors are snoring and still 
Making up takes brute strength and great skill.

    Amusing, laughter-inducing but man, the making-up beats it all. "They're shaking the wall, the plaster has started to fall" LOL. A 7 for you,madam! Kim Patrice :)
