Cleaning Up One's Backyard

Cleaning up one's backyard,
May take more than a rake.

Cleaning up one's backyard,
May create backache but not heartbreak.

Cleaning up one's backyard,
Done to do is never too late to make...
A difference to a neighbor with it made.

Some have their noses over fences,
To peek.
Unable to mind their own damn business,
To keep.
Some have their eyes on troubles to start,
With an interest to insist...
An innocence to intend,
Had been meant.
