One of us has to go

I have a new neighbor

And it’s not going well

She’s lean and she’s mean

She’s a neighbor from Hell!

My telephone rang

‘Twas her voice breathing hard

She had just seen “my” rat

It had come from my yard!

She knocked on my door

All puffin’ and wheezin’

My lilacs must go

They had started her sneezin’

My cat scratched her dog

Who was out roaming free

She had him stitched up

And sent us the fee.

I must admit that this terrible hellion

Is inspiring thoughts

That are most Machiavellian

I’m concocting a plan

For some fool-proof caper

To send her out packing

May the devil take her!
