We’re #10

Responding to the livability rank Santa Barbara received and how the stats skew how we are perceived.

We are mostly young,

Actually barely legal.

We’re single and fun,

Ordinary yet regal.

In some skewed surveys

Our rents are average,

Not the cause of soup days —

Potatoes and cabbage —

And of course we rent

Out of preference,

Not because we spent

Every cent in adherence,

For the price of prestige,

To live in tenth place,

As a loyal liege

In the lifestyle race.
