We love you, dear Austin and didn’t want to leave
But, home prices and no zoning had led us to believe
Our horizons should broaden, our focus widen for sure
Would any other Texas city have your allure?
So, with pen, paper and a positive stance
We compiled our wish list and then by chance
A vibrant, new friend gave us food for thought
As she regaled us with tales of the home she’d just bought
It was all she had dreamed of, all she would desire
And she was able to get in just under the wire
In her late 50s, she met the 55+ regulation
Now she’s the poster child for Sun City and our new inspiration
She’s swimming, she’s golfing, she’s dancing and that’s not all
She’s joined the hiking club, the Spanish club and is playing pickle ball
The amenities intrigued us and as her new friends were introduced
We wondered; are they actors and are we being seduced?
We pondered, we contemplated and finally our instincts we did obey
So, lookout Sun City, we’re heading your way!
