Richard Rodriguez


The silent neighbor is me especially at

Night, when they fight, just being polite

And not a nosy bee

Those bruises the kids had, they swore they

Fell, not my fault, not my responsibility to

Tell, just being polite and not a nosy bee

Or when their mother broke her arm that

Night, her screams I did not hear I say,

The stereo was up, and I was looking the

Way, just being polite and not a nosy bee

Yes the screaming goes on, deaf is me

Not being polite and not a nosy bee.
