Neighborhood

The crazy neighbor down the street from me,
always had her multi colored polka dotted curtains open for all to see.
Music is playing very loud,
there was a wonderful beat to that crazy sound.
This neighborhood is going to the dogs,
barking and croaking like the frogs.
House #1530 dresses her dog for a walk in a stroller,
instead of walking they go like a steamroller.
House #1515 has lost her mind,
bright colors don't match and could make you go blind.
The neighborhood has changed so much,
petting frogs is a common touch.
House #1518 goes out dressed from her toes to the top of her head,
with huge pretty flowers on her hat made out of bread.
What can I say about my neighborhood,
we sure are not ready for sainthood.
We are one in a million,
or maybe that is one in a zillion.
Stop on by,
for a laugh and a sandwich on rye.

I remember a neighborhood back in the mid 1960 s.. Nothing now even comes close to it. Someti.es change is so very good, other times it is just the opposite. And now opposite seems to be racing far ahead. Enjoyed your fine poem my friend . A fav, too.

Thanks for your note. Glad you like this fun write. Do I see a fav??? You made my day. "Thank You." This was just a fun/crazy neighborhood to write about. Not True. Wish it was. Have a blessed day....................

Very different type of poem my friend, all neighbors change given a certain period of time, they outgrow themselves, and others seek it, whilst you will seek for a better one! Hugs and blessings Jennifer.

I would fit into this neighborhood nicely and especially this house " House #1515 has lost her mind, bright colors don't match and could make you go blind."

Loved the humor of your poem. But it's better than my street where concrete is supreme.
