Living in the suburbs

Smoking Marlboros with ecclesiastic cats
Robin Hood hungry for more morons
Usurped patriots lose many kilos
Red paint for those with afterbirth
Enthusiastic football players use a hockey puck
Many a yard they run looking for a tank
Technology beyond our understanding
Is the gardener anywhere to be found?
More red paint for the enthusiastic
Less technology for Robin Hood
Teach him how to use a hockey puck
Usurped he can’t play football anymore
They are hungry for more cats
The ecclesiastic cats wonder why
Can’t we smoke more Marlboros
Afterbirth running in the gutter
After the tank rolls by with the gardener
Red paint splashed upon a wall with Robin Hood’s image
