Never live below

the guy upstairs

playing his music all evening long

bass cabs thumping

then worse of all

last thing at night

hear the bedsprings squeaking

for a minute or two

hear her walk the floor

heading for the bathroom

as his snoring takes hold

hearing them row

he don’t care for her

she spends too much

neither can let it go

I lasted a week or so

had to move on

knowing they couldn’t

or was it wouldn’t?
