That’s Apartment Living

Weeknight college parties,

booze all around.

Music pulsing through the walls.

That’s apartment living.

1 AM infant cries,

every two hours like clockwork.

Newborns screaming bloody murder.

That’s apartment living.

Dog shit right outside your door,

tracked onto your carpet floor.

Vicious howls while checking the mail.

That’s apartment living.

Fighting couples in hot debate,

every word through paper thin walls.

Make-up sounds soon to follow.

That’s apartment living.

Monthly rent thrown down the drain,

no equity in sight.

Dreaming about an impossible down-payment.

Well… stuck with apartment living.
