Ode to Suburbia

So I was listening to my RENT original cast recording when my mother asks me to go and get a few things from the shops. I took my camera along, and realising that my photography has considerably improved in the past six months or so, I figured I'd take some photographs of the area, straying up to the sandstone hilltops, before wandering back down to the house via the labyrinth of roads that make up the local estate. As I took photo after photo, I felt a different type of creativity, in the form of words and phrases that cropped up as I watched a couple mow the lawn, and another hop in the car to drive round the corner to the shops.

This is my first piece of creative writing in a while, even if it is lyrics rather than a piece of prose.
