Like father
Like son

As roofs leak
So do our heads ache
As walls crumble
So do our backs hurt

As floors warp
So do our feet fracture
As window crack
So do our visions fail

As doors buckle
So do our legs give way
As pipes burst
So do our organs break down

As the air in houses get stale
So do our breathing become arduous
As houses decay
So do our bodies decline

As houses need protective tending
So do our bodies need preventive care
As houses need repair
So do our bodies need mending

As houses collapse
So do our bodies die
Like house
Like body
