Progress

Before I owned a house

all I worried about was the rent.

Now, the eavestroughs,

they need fixing–

the painters messed up

when they replaced them;

now the garden is overrun;

now i pick up dogshit;

now kitchen needs updating–

can’t let it slide,

might have to sell,

eventually;

now the front steps need painting;

now i have to mow the front yard;

now the front door…

piece of crap!

replace it!

soon i’ll have to take off the screens,

and wash the windows,

again.

Before i owned a house

all i did was pay the rent.

This is progress?
