A Summons From the Neighborhood Association

 

By Elton Camp

 

Into Fred and Penny, the letter brought fear

The Neighborhood Association tells ‘em to appear

 

“To certain regulations you have agreed

To them, your addition seems to exceed.”

 

“These rules are for the benefit of all.

For removal and a fine, we may call.”

 

“With our decrees you must cooperate.

Towers and turrets we surely do hate.”

 

“So appear before us right away

If in this area you want to stay.”

 

“Your house we have a legal right to seize

And then do with it exactly as we please.”

 

“They have no taste at all,” said Fred

“I told you to check first,” Penny said

 

“Those dopes can’t tell me what to do.

With their silly rules I am through!”

 

Fred learned the term “binding agreement”

Still, of his defiance, refused to repent

 

On them, vengeance was soon wrought

And their place became an empty lot
