       Something I penned real quick about buying our house. Let me know what you think.

    Alas, it seems there is no end.

    A vial of blood, a lock of hair.
    My name scribbled to nonsense.
    I didn't think I'd be this tense.

    Endorse a check, then sign once more.
    We're almost done.

    It's a damn good thing.
    As my eyes start to blur, and my ears start to ring.

    A roof and walls, and a new tile floor.
    A beautiful home for my family.
    A joy from the previous insanity.

    Classic green shutters and a fine red door.
    Thirty years to bitch and moan
    About what it took to get the loan.

    Thirty years to make memories
    A lifetime as we all grow old
    A lifetime since the "bought" and "sold"

    All done with love for my family
    I did it then, I would do it again.
    I did it, wouldn't you my friend?

      yeah i know about that sense of panic and relief when signing and endorsing and sighning once more... nothing like lookforward to building memories.. a diffrent theme from looking back on them...

      I like this one, it is different than the usual type of poetry I like....but yet there's something about it that makes me like it so much. Great job.

      I think that this is a classic piece done in a very modern way. I think that it is something new that more people can relate to and I completly get this. I just moved and it really is all just a headache.
