A Nice Place - POEM

So I moved into a new place
A couple of months back
Nice place
A bit noisy
But all in all
A nice place
After a few weeks
I noticed that
The remote-controlled
Gate, to the complex
is on the fritz
Every other week
We received a memo:
Criminals are trying to open
The gate
At night. Please
Be vigilant, and
Keep an eye out.”
And I realized
No matter how nice
The place
Or how sturdy
The gate
You’re not safe anywhere
It’s a nice place
