I DIDN’T NEED

A MANSION


I didn’t need a mansion,

when all the world

was building theirs.


A smaller house

did me rightly,

fixed up bit by bit.


I didn’t need to have

the same, as everyone

around me.


Now, in days of rising costs,

and mortgages

that cost the earth


I’m glad I didn’t need,

a house with extra

added things.


I look around

and see the toll

those mansions


wrung from some,

and I realised that now,

I’m the lucky one.
