Parting Gifts

For 42 years I took hot water for granted.
When there was none I had no one to blame
But myself
The landlord
The building management
The campo
The government.
As a parting gift
You taught me how to turn on the pilot on the boiler.
Now I will have no one to blame but myself.
Next you will teach me how to turn on the gas
While the city burns around us.
