There Goes The Neighborhood

It used to be just the queers here

And us

We were the odd men out

Queers amongst queers

But they accepted us and things were good

Then the people moved out

And rents went down

Aspiring actors and various other shit-bags moved in

And took over

Half naked girls appeared by the pool

But this was somehow worse

Now couples and groups of friends

Scream and argue in the street

About jobs

And love

And auditions

I hear them through the window and I hate them

Every day

The sky is queer and gray at night

I’m sure it’s always been this way

But I notice it more now
