I hate authourity
And I hate the law
And I want
I like my neighbours just fine. It would be nice to have old punk rock neighbours like me instead of the ones I have got but I would probably have to go to jail for that to happen. Most of us have been watching television 63 feet from one another for years. Unfortunately one of my neighbours pissed me off last weekend. They pissed me off by pissing off one of my other neighbours who were having a summer wedding party. There were about fifty people and no one was throwing up over the fence, snorting coke out in their cars or staggering around the neighbourhood like you would expect at a summer wedding party.
At precisely 10:00 PM the neighbours who pissed me off showed up on my partying neighbours front porch. The wife led the assault. "It's ten o'clock," she shrieked. "I'm trying to sleep! The by-laws say no noise after ten o'clock. I need my sleep." On and on she went like a fat cow taught to talk by a bored farmer who forgot to teach the cow when to shut the fuck up.
My neighbours having the party, solid Steepletonians all, would have been appalled if they had to answer the door to a policeman so they shut the party down. The groom and the bride both shed tears. But at least the by-laws were obeyed.
