To Rent or Not to Rent


To rent, or not to rent,

That is the question:

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind

To suffer a Landlord month by month

Or to take arms against

A fluctuating Real Estate

And by well planned discretion

Own or rent; no more-

Ay, there’s the problem;

For who could bear

The agony of unexpected

Rent increases, the insolence

Of unpaid bills, the Law’s

Intolerance, the impatient

Scorns of disprized Landlords

Contribute to that dread

Of all who rent

And by that dread

Discover, in that undiscovered country

Called Ownership, those ills we bear

Until we fly to freedom

And avoid despair
