The jumpy castle

Out here where I live
at the end of the world
on the end of this dead end
where people start wars over
barking dogs where men the
head of the association get
overthrown and thrown out
of office based on a collective
paranoia gossip and rumors
and whole family forced
to pick up and leave
where best friend
husbands try to cheat
with each others wives
the most recent one
heard one of these
goombya women
(of course a teacher
who is getting none
from her husband
always away on business)
making claims that the father
with a drinking problem
rubbed up against her
while jumping up
and down in one
of those blow up
castles (swear
to god couldn’t
make this up)
and now turns
out wife finally
divorced him
after fooling
around with
loads of women
in his dad’s tire
delivery business
getting his tubes
tied and going
on a cruise
to try and save their
and the
who said
she never
ended up
having a litter.
