19 February – House hunting

The market is fierce, the competition high,
house-hunters are fighting over where they will reside.
Forget gazumping, that’s for children and amateurs,
in the nesting game, there are more violent parameters.
The gloves come off to secure the perfect place
when time is tight and you’ve a brood to raise.
Finding the right home is stressful for humans too,
but I’m still relieved we don’t approach it like birds do!
