Dear Neighbors,

Neighbors above us,
You’re really quite rude
Your manners in living
Are impeccably crude.

We do live below you,
We are not the ground,
So think of your neighbors
When on the floor you do pound.

On weekdays and Mondays,
We must go to work.
Thus your early morning parties
Makes our tempers quite irked.

You water your flowers
As surely you ought to,
But must you dump water
On my head as I walk through?

In parking your car,
You resemble a blind man
You take up 2 spaces
Like you’re driving a freight van!

The stress and frustration of buying a home
Has given to us another advantage
Not only much nicer and cleaner and ours
No longer to your brutish noise we’ll be hostage

So farewell churlish neighbors
We don’t wish you poorly
But far from your oblivious din
Our newfound joy will rest securely.

A bad neighbor is as great a calamity as a good one is a great advantage. - Hesiod
