Suburban Diss

Lawns grow like a virus which keeps us busy
trimming down our facade in the suburbs.
We keep it just right and tight so no one knows
what happens deep in the cavern of our house.
The slap or scream is heard but unreported
like my neighbour ‘Tough Japan Guy’ who was yelling
in his language for about 20 minutes without a call.
Surely the drunken gamer’s eating breakfast
in their late 30’s are far removed from suspects
of masturbation and drug addiction and even
possibly child porn to be able to live on in society
as that ‘cool older guy’ you pass at the shops.
If only a wife would take them to maturity
and Japan Guy told he should lower his voice
when I am trying to relax above him.
