(Submitted by: CHE)

I moved to my home just over a year ago,
With warnings that my neighbours were the neighbours from hell,
Shouting & screaming it what they do,
F’ing and Blinding just yelling at you!

So I’d heard some rumours of what they were like
Only time could tell if the rumours were right.

Well it wasn’t long before the rumours came true,
Yes the shouting and screaming is just what they do,
From early morning till late at night,
Threatening to kill, well this just isn’t right.

So with a word in their ear and a quick side wards stare,
Making them aware that I wasn’t scared,
Well it wasn’t long before it all stopped,
Now they knew they were no long at the top.

There’s peace at last,
Just how it should be,
The results at the end?
2-1 to me.
