Poem: Best of both worlds

By: Milt Montague


clusters of apartment houses
once found only in the city
now appearing in the suburbs
huddled together for protection

the metropolis moves to the burbs
offering apartment house services
to tenants in a small town environment

no more concerns about security
garbage, snow removal,
heat or air conditioning

shopping is a new experience
getting to know the merchants
as neighbors

enjoying casual relations
with locals over coffee breaks

a short walk to the railroad
access to the city’s delights
then home again to tranquility
a new way of life
