They Say…

They say the grass is greener on the other side, so why is my neighbor’s grass brown?

They say the grass is greener on the other side, so why is the boy-next-door’s face black and blue?

They say the grass is greener on the other side, so why do I always hear screaming next door?

They say the grass is greener on the other side, so why do I hear sirens in the street?

They say the grass is greener on the other side, so why is a stretcher being carried over that dead grass?

They say the grass is greener on the other side, but have you been next door?
