The House of the Future  


The House of the Future

By Elton Camp

It was by traveling the McMansion route
We learned what housing bubble was about

Houses that are far too big and hard to heat
Showed regular-sized quarters canít be beat

Earthquake resistant and maintenance free
Is the absolute best way for a dwelling to be

Five hundred square feet isnít a whole lot
With planning, all thatís needed itís got

If for landscaping there is really no need
Reduced cost and work are hard to exceed

A familyís income would go quite far
If itís bought for the price of a nice car

Thirty year mortgages would no more be
Debt-free in ten years sounds great to me

Another factor that surely canít be wrong
If you must relocate, bring the house along

This approach to housing I recommend
Right now isnít too soon for it to begin

Being called ďtrailer trashĒ is chance you take
But buying some huge house is sure a mistake

About time.
I knew somebody would make fun of this awful economy in a poem soon enough. I like the humorous approach to it. Simply said and very realistic. There is no such thing as trailer trash but there is a thing such as making huge mistakes. Like the saying "the bigger they are, the harder they fall". A very true work.

Thanks for your well-put comment. This one has been posted for quite some time and I didn't expect to hear any more about it. It's nice that you found it. Elton
