Rent Is Too Steep

Written October 13, 2016

Your love is a fortress
But I can't afford it
The price has been driven too high
By gentrification and the likes of some guy
Who's labeled it "rustic" and "chic"
All this rent is too steep
So I walk around town
Just to find a place to sleep
Be it yard, bridge, or overpass
I find a way to pass the time
Looking for some love on a dime
