Life never seemed as complicated
Until I moved to this place,
Sold our private detached house,
And downsized to our small space.

Life never seemed as populated
Until I came to this home,
From every unit daily
Countless dogs and people roam.

Life never seemed as regulated
Until bylaws issued here.
Now a strata council makes
Misdemeanours very clear.

Life never seemed as insulated
Until enclosed with people
But they’re extremely private
Not like folks beneath a steeple.

Life never seemed abbreviated
Until I came to this time
Retirement’s closing chapters
Many years past my prime.
