Ode to My Subletter

By The SIPA Failed Poets Collective

O sweet subletter, thou breath of sweet relief,

thine presence hath my bank account undeceiv'd.
Thine 10-week rental venture -- my honest belief --
is the grandest idea that your mind hath conceived. 
Be gentle with the plants, my heart, oh I!
Their ongoing sustenance must be achieve-d.
Take caution with the elevator,
it is on occasion, somewhat risky.
A roommate once trapped, became an martyr. 
Help yourself to the booze, I think you'll find whiskey!
I bought that after finals, at the thought
of drinking it, I shiver quite briskly.
Enjoy your stay! Fingers crossed, shan't be fraught!
Don't forget the bonsai in the corner, my heart, oh I!
