The Neighbours Are Having A Party

The neighbours are having a party

their voices starting to sound hale and hearty,

Alcohol induced I have no doubt,

I hope they will not start to shout.

My quiet and serene Saturday night is out of the window,

I drown out the volume as their voices reach a crescendo.

All of a sudden it goes quiet!

The music and voices no more a riot!

Car engines start up, tyres squeal,

After the cacophony, the silence that follows feel surreal.
