Nasty Negroes

 

(English)

 

My wife and I are currently living among bad-minded, uncooperative people.

We do not make friends with the quarrelsome tenants in the yard.

I know that the tenants hate me and I do not welcome hypocritical greetings.

My wife warmly greets the hypocrites and she returns their greetings,

But she avoids having long arguments or unnecessary conversations with them.

 

I keep my distance from the nasty Negroes; I do not even socialize with them.

They did not want us to live here in the first place because of their bad intentions.

Every day the tenants make us uncomfortable because they want us to leave.

They are the same ones who caused the lady who was living here before we came here to move,

But we are not afraid of them and they will not succeed in making us leave our home.

 

Winky Winky said that the previous occupant of the house was a nasty woman,

But she is a slanderer, a rumourmonger, a mischief-maker and a damn liar.

She is the nastiest and laziest person who has ever lived on the premises.

Day and night, she lies in bed and watch television until her muscles cramp.

Her rooms are dusty and they emit a foul-smelling odour when she opens the doors.

 

The nasty Negro seldom cleans the veranda, the kitchen, and the bathroom.

She has never picked up a leaf off the ground and put it in the rubbish bin,

And neither has she ever swept or raked the yard since she moved in.

She does not want to work for a living and she is not even a good housewife.

The father of her two youngest children must be an insane man to live with her.

 

Winky Winky was badly brought up; she cooks her food on an old, dirty gas stove.

Oil and grease mess up the kitchen walls and the cardboard that she put on the floor.

She has a bad habit of leaving dirty dishes overnight in the rusty kitchen sink.

And because of that, stray cats jump through the broken window and lick the plates.

Rats, cockroaches, lizards, spiders, houseflies, ants and slugs infest the kitchen sink.

 

Someone maliciously put a poisonous substance on my wife’s brassiere to harm her.

I told her many times not to leave the laundry overnight on the clothesline.

If she had listened to my advice, she would have saved herself the suffering.

All the people who live here are suspects because we do not know for sure who did it.

We would be foolish to build a close relationship with people whom we cannot trust.

 

We share the house with a man called Germs and he uses his room as a brothel.

Careless and worthless women sleep with him for money in that filthy place.

The nasty son of a bitch consumed electricity at our expense for several months.

And the energy company disconnected the service twice for overdue bills that he owed.

His first girlfriend left him without warning because of his lack of ambition.

 

The dishonest tenants are not paying rent for the rooms that they occupy.

They are squatting in the landlord’s houses because he lives in England.

Furthermore, they want the elderly man to die soon so that they can capture his yard.

The nasty Negroes would rather make illegal connections than pay utility bills.

We are fed up with the situation, but we will not leave here and let them win.
