“Love Thy Neighbours”


 “Love Thy Neighbors”


Neighbors are your closest friends

Share the air and the land

To become enemies is the normal trend

Where we went wrong we don’t understand


Selfishness, jealousy or intolerance

All these and others might lend a hand

To cause a dent which is hard to mend

 Wage a war for the smallest spark

And feel the brunt for this stunt


Others far away may fuel the fight

To see the neighbors fall apart

And lick the gains from the fallout

Loss of life and property is not their concern

 Never be a ladle in their hands


“Do unto others what you would like others to do unto you”

  Follow this mantra to make your neighbor your bosom friend.

    We should treat others how we wish to be treated .. so true ! I’ve had problems with my neighbours in the past , them hitting on my wall etc it’s not nice . I don’t think they would like it if I hit on their wall if they were upset

    If only we all had nice neighbours
