My Neighbor


Poem Commentary

Written for a neighbor lady .

My Neighbor


I have a neighbor lady I shan't call her out

by name. Because quite simply I do not know

it. My, but isn't that a shame?


I have tried to introduce myself while she

was working on her lawn. She simply glared

at me. So I passed on.


Quite often she has outdoor tea's with all her

Church lady friends. Publicly showing off

her incredible righteousness.


Bible studies in her driveway as my son and

I walk by. Spurned it seems. We cannot

figure out why.


Maybe she saw the police in my driveway

two times last year. They were here to arrest

my best friend lady, you would know if you

had simply asked.


Why do I try? Such a simple thing to me.

It sickens and it saddens when I see ignorance

such as this. All puffed up and prideful.



I do not know your name but judging you

that's not for me. Your husband seems a gem.

And that is great to see. It takes all kinds.


And lady? You best believe this long haired

wild man's gonna kneel and pray for you.

I know Jesus too! And I hope you meet the

real one. The father I adore.


He patiently awaits you to join us on that


Phil G. Inman Sr.
