In walking distance from my house
Are restaurants a’plenty.
In just a 5 block radius,
There must be more than 20.
There also are a lot of stores –
For food or drugs or liquor
And also several hospitals
(Though cabs get you there quicker).
In walking distance, there is art –
Just choose a cool museum
And Google the exhibits now
Then stroll on by to see ‘em.
You need an outfit, socks or shoes?
A book of stamps? Some flowers?
No matter what, it can be bought –
Just double-check the hours.
A city life has lots of noise
But anyone you talk to
Will tell you that it’s wonderful
To have so much to walk to.
