House Hunting

There’s one, over there!


There – between the trees.


Oh! Too late, it’s gone!

Gazumping off, up the ante.

Can’t keep them in cheque!


I could have called in the

Loan Arranger

To help track it down again.


But well, the government’s starting

A breeding programme.

Soon all the fields will be full of them!

Word play is always fun - especially when well done as here. :) Best wishes, Dave

This is brilliant I love the wordplay and you paint such a visual and mental image of the frustration and stress involved at the same time giving me a really good laugh

It's also a subject "dear " to my heart at the moment as my daughter is currently searching for their first foray in the fees

Made me smile this one.... although there`s not much gazumping going on in our area at the moment! And yes, our once green belt is gradually being eroded by back handers and council relatives. A breeding porogramme for the wealthy or well connected.

An off-the-wall take on the hassle of buying a home. Short...and very sharp!
