House purchase a risky step

Be careful what house you buy,

To hide its past the selller might try. 

Boris went to have a look at a house with his wife,

A serial killer had lived there ,now serving life.

Police found eleven bodies there hidden away,

Thats why it was cheap,what more can I say.


A wife put her house up for sale after getting divorced,

Her husband had left three years ago,to sell she was forced.

But a property inspection unfolded something really dramatic,

Her husband had hung himself up in the atic.


As properties change hands over many years,

A dark secret frequently disappears.

Murder,suicide or drug cultivation has been hidden away,

To shake off the stigma before the new owner falls prey.


Be careful what house you buy,

To hide its past the seller might try.





◄ A rubbish job for Boris

Honest house sale and maybe hope for a community. ►
