When they’re tired of the community faces,

Relying on everyone for everything,

When they just want to be left alone,

You’ll see homeless become suburbanites.

When they’re tired of the shared spaces,

Welcoming anyone to do anything,

When they want a fence around their home,

You’ll see children become suburbanites.

When they’re all armed with shields and maces,

Afraid of someone or something,

When they all retreat to their Thunderdome,

You’ll see us all become suburbanites.
