WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Neighbor

Rumors have it that to have good neighbors, depends on good fences

I believe these rumors to be at the very best really bad pretenses

To the best of my recollection of the life I’ve lived in experience

Is that to be a good neighbor is to be a good friend by preference

To know that in hard times on whom it is that you can depend

Ultimately, to be a good neighbor is to become each other’s friend

Those who prefer otherwise come up with a million defenses

Including little white lies about the value of white picket fences

My best guess is that they’ve been hurt before and won’t admit

That’s how it is they came to believe something that doesn’t fit

Reagan told Gorbachev to tear down the wall, I say it about fences

Become each other’s friends in the present and all future tenses

At least that’s my opinion about life and what I wish best to savor

Let’s forget about putting up separation and get on with being good neighbors

Fall At The Mill -Good Fences Make Good Neighbors
