A Sour Harvest

there was a proud resident
who gave her neighbours
a torrid time because she
was well-connected and big

an apologist and a menace
she was a law unto herself 
none could tell her to reduce
the noise her hi-fi produced

from her children to her pets
--all did as they pleased –
her licentious dogs caused havoc 
even her chicks were untouchable 

when the empire of those who had been
fortifying and sugarcoating her nonsense  
imploded--she also crushed on her chest
all the sense of immunity just fizzled out

it was a bitter harvest as her own dogs ran riot
--did the unthinkable: biting her like a stranger
while her own children stood aloof as if gloating
the stunned neighbours watched the fracas from afar
