Faucet

The joys of home maintenance. :)

Home Sour Home

I had a home.
Two thousand square feet.
It was a nightmare
to keep clean and neat.

I bought steam heat,
a polishing set,
and rubber gloves.
So much to get!

Worry and fret.
Buy at the store
scrubbers and bleach,
sponges galore.

A sticky floor,
and filthy carpet.
Tile grout mold,
and dripping faucet.

Guest room blanket -
dryer lint fire.
Backed up toilet.
Finances dire.

Crawl space mire.
Expensive heating.
Rooftop leaking.
Contractor cheating.

Time fleeting.
Money gone.
Taxes due.
Face the dawn.

Just a pawn.
Responsibilities.
Community dues.
Those damn utilities.

But apartments have these,
as well as the rent.
So now you know why
I live in a tent!
