Suburban front yard fence



Truths relayed over fences
develop a life of their own
They suck life from the social dimension of fine lady they used to call a friend

Shared with an adjacent street, a block of flats,
The WHOLE neighbourhood
Look it's her  How could she?
Pay her no attention
nor offer her the time of day
Do not heed her Hello
Ignore as she comes our way
should know better She Should. Heh!
