First They…Zoning

First they said we must separate business and family, and I did not speak out--
   it was only to make things more organized;
Then they said we must all have fine trimmed lawns, and I did not speak out--
   it was only to make things more tidy;
Then they said we must all use the same color paint, and I did not speak out--
   I like white;
Then they said any change must be approved by the city, and I did not speak out--
   but some people still made changes without asking;
Finally, a weekly inspection was required, and I did not speak out--
   I love to inspect and fine those who disobey...just leave my house alone.
