You purchase a one or two bedroom flat,
For which you pay an amount that is hefty and fat;
Your floor is someone's ceiling though;
Your ceiling is someone's floor, you know;
None of the walls is your own:
Within the four walls, lies your zone.
Every flat is made as far as possible air tight;
And people live with AC day and night.
With all the doors all the time shut,
Sunlight direct or diffused is effectively cut.
Your own neighbour is your stranger,
Whom you meet at times of danger.
