Good Neighbors

by Camilla Jean Welsch

Oh yeah, we know that girl….

Yeah, she sometimes gives crazy a whirl…

it’s OK, she’s a pretty nice girl…

Yeah, all right, she’s a bit old to be called a girl…

But, she doesn’t do anything too abominable,

though she may say a few things to make your hair curl.

Right. You might not at first know what to make of her….

You know, somewhere else she could be on the street,

(like a mangy cur in the gutter).

Yeah, there really is no magic cure….

But, here we know her.

We accept that (woman) girl.

And we try to be good neighbors, for sure.

We always do that…

We’d do it for you.

We do it for her.
