A Musing For Your Perusing!

The burbs are scary. Things can get hairy. Just ask Tom Hanks. You may need tanks. Hey, if Gremlins come you just may. So don't go rolling your eyes at your bay.


A little musing,
For your perusing.
That I've said.
Let's put it to bed.

A little musing,
For your perusing.
Damn, the burbs are in my head.
Stuck there and bring dread.

Bijoux lives there.
Must be a tough lair.
All those houses looking the same.
Odds are not all is tame.

Odds are she may get bored,.
Odds are she may stick up a billboard.
Look, my house is different from yours.
Odds are it may start wars.

The neighborhood watch,
Will treat her like a sasquatch.
They can't allow change.
That in the burbs is strange.

Keep change inside.
Mayberry needs it's pride.
No changing of the tide.
Or in comes the death ride.

A dog may crap in her yard.
To them it isn't hard.
She may slip and fall.
Whoops, damn it all.

Her odds are sure sinking.
The neighborhood is linking.
Linking up against her change.
No way can she rearrange.

Oh, and she takes trips too.
Odds have went down the loo.
The neighbors will get rid of the change when's she's gone.
They'll "accidentally" set fire to her lawn.

No more computer at her sea.
This is one weird odd spree.
The burbs is such a scary place.
Everyone wears a smiley face.

Odds = Rather Low
Should She Become The Neighborhood Foe

Do you live in the burbs too? Is it as scary as her zoo? Did I embellish a bit? Hey, at least there is no hillbillies with it. That would be twice as bad. Think she'll survive at her Bytes from the Burbs pad? Odds aren't in her favor if change comes to pass. Or I may just be a crazy little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  4. Lol, thanks for the feature, Pat. We do have way too many dogs in the hood and rude folks who don't PUP (pick up poop). And yes, I did do a post on the county's program that used PUP on their signs. Website: dogscantflush.org

    You can't make this crap up! 😂

  17. Save me from the burbs ~ Okay, so I live in them, but we've got a pretty reasonable HOA. I miss the outports of Newfoundland that used to have wildly mismatched colored houses and lots of wild spaces. Too much blandness is not good for the soul.

    1. Yeah, blandness would suck

  19. I kind of regret not going with a house in a HOA area. I have 2 neighbors who never pick up their yards and my next door neighbor has an ugly ass RV parked in their driveway blocking my view 10 months out of the year.

  21. I would hate to live in the burbs
    All the same just like turds.
    I know one couple who live there
    All must be the same and no one would dare
    Change one thing. One man tried.
    He bought red mulch, yup, its true
    Got a Nasty letter, change it or will sue.
    Well not that strong but a letter was sent.
    Now the mulch is black, he won't have to go live in a tent.
