I’ve come to talk with you again
Because listings softly creeping
Reduced home values while I was sleeping
And the retirement that was planted in their brain
Still remains
Without the sound of buying

In open houses I walked alone
Narrow driveways of faux cobblestone
This listing even claims the street lamp
Toronto, Vancouver? One’s cold, one’s damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a reduced sign
That split the neighbour’s spine
And touched the sound of crashing

From a yellow helicopter I then saw
Thirteen thousand listings maybe more
People looking without buying
People giving but no taking
People writing songs that CREA never shared
No one dared
Disturb the sound of popping

“Greater Fools,” said I, “you do not know
Listings like a cancer grows
See my charts that I might teach you
Lessons from Florida may they reach you”
But my words like home prices fell
And echoed in the House of Commons

And Carney fled and people prayed
To the leverage gods that they made
And the Bond Market flashed out its warning
In the words those higher rates were forming
And the sign said “The Legacy of Flaherty is best written on leaky condo walls
And bathroom stalls
And whispered in the aftermath of a correction

Great thank you for posting this - I logged on just to copy it over.

I can't believe it was as popular as it was 100+ thumbs up, I'm adding that to my linked in credentials
