Not in my backyard

Not in my backyard
(dooryard open from 9a.m. to 5p.m. Monday- Friday)
This plot of land
groomed for my protection.
Four walled enclave
free from invasion.
Complacent one,
self absorbed,
within hot house glass.
Duck and cover
a thing of the past.
Nuclear family
atomic blast.
You look down upon the lesser with disdain,
handicapped yourself,
you reserve the right to bitch and complain.
This bubble you create
imperfect obtuse,
encroaches on others
familiarity becomes abuse.
Not in my back yard
boast of impenetrable fa├žade;
as a bulldozer wrecks your fragile ego
with one swift motion
across the whole subdivision.
