Road Noise

My wife is surprised by the road noise
from cars half a mile away.

I try to explain that we live in town,
but she’s disappointed all the same.

If we moved to the country,
we’d lose access to schools.

If we moved away,
we’d have a longer commute.

Me? I can put up with the road noise,
but the next-door neighbors are kooks.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Road Noise.”
