They slam and shout,
And they b*tch and whinge!
You want to cry,
While inside you cringe.

You want them to disappear,
Perhaps get a life!
Instead of intimidating,
You and your wife.

They make a noise!
They make a mess!
Devaluing property,
Bringing you stress.

They scream at the kids,
Lie through their teeth,
And the council’s complacency,
Increases your grief.

You do your bit,
Try to hope for the best!
Thank God for NFHiB –
I can get it off my chest!
