Immediately They Took Offense

What happened to the beautiful home,
That once elegantly stood here?

'The occupants burned it down,
When a new maintenance worker hired...
Just a few years ago,
'Suggested' that getting a new furnace...
Would save them a bundle in their utility bills.'

And...
They burned the house down?
Because of a suggestion?
That doesn't make sense.

'Well...
Those very same words were spoken,
By the maintenance worker...
Who attempted to tell them,
They were blinded by their own stubbornness.
And immediately they took offense.
And, well...
That beautiful home no longer exists.'

There's go to be more to it.

'Oh...
There is.
The residents declared him,
An arrogant lowly nobody.
Who was in no position to tell them 'what' to do.
And the head of the tenants' association,
Got the rest of the occupants to agree...
They would end his job.'

By burning down their own home?

'You wanted to know...
What happened to the beautiful home,
That once elegantly stood here?
That's what happened.

You should have heard the occupants applauding...
An hour before anyone called the fire station.'
