In Other Neighborhoods - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is a neon fence,
Constructed for all to see.
With a warning sign on it...
'Do Not Trespass.
Beware Of Vicious Dog.'
And 'still' the occupants,
Living inside blame others...
For the mess that has collected,
In their own backyard!
To then find others to protest,
Their messes...
With similar complaints.
And as usual...
Those they find to fault,
Are those living peacefully...
In other neighborhoods.
To trespass, attack and trash!
