The Renaissance
If you are old,weak,-or tired like me,
Then The Renaissance is the place to be,
The rooms are spacious with cleaning included-
Salesmen and peddlers are strictly precluded.
Meals are served with stylish grace-
No waiting lines for residents to face!
Fruits,sweets, and coffee are inbetween treats,
There are ice cream socials and popcorn to eat!
Entertainment is often and well received
By attendees who are most happily pleased.
The Social Director plans trips out to eat,
And Casino trips for those on their feet-
There are exercise classes to keep you fit
And lounging places to just visit and sit.
A salon is in house, for beauty's sake -
The library is open- with books to take.
There's resident meetings to air your views,
There are announcements made, to apprise you of news,
So if keeping house is becoming too much-
If you can no longer cook, clean, and such,
Then visit The Renaissance and you will see-
Why it's the perfect place you need to be!
